    So this was a fairly unusual merge window with the holidays, and as a
    result I'm not even going to complain about the pull requests that
    ended up coming in late. It all mostly worked out fine, I think. And
    lot of people got their pull requests in early, and hopefully had a
    calm holiday season. Thanks again to everybody.

    The numbering change is not indicative of anything special. If you
    want to have an official reason, it's that I ran out of fingers and
    toes to count on, so 4.21 became 5.0. There's no nice git object
    numerology this time (we're about 6.5M objects in the git repo), and
    there isn't any major particular feature that made for the release
    numbering either. Of course, depending on your particular interests,
    some people might well find a feature they like so much that they
    think it can do as a reason for incrementing the major number.

    So go wild. Make up your own reason for why it's 5.0.

    Because as usual, there's a lot of changes in there. Not because this
    merge window was particularly big - but even our smaller merge windows
    aren't exactly small. It's a very solid and average merge window with
    just under 11k commits (or about 11.5k if you count merges).

    The stats look fairly normal. About 50% is drivers, 20% is
    architecture updates, 10% is tooling, and the remaining 20% is all
    over (documentation, networking, filesystems, header file updates,
    core kernel code..). Nothing particular stands out, although I do like
    seeing how some ancient drivers are getting put out to pasture

    As usual even the shortlog is much too big to post, so the summary
    below is only a list of the pull requests I merged.

    Go test. Kick the tires. Be the first kid on your block running a 5.0
    pre-release kernel.

      Pour ma part, je suis étonné. Il y a quelques mois, il avait annoncé, avec coyrage et franchise, qu'il orenait un oeu de recul sur la collunication notau, le temp de régler ses problèmes de sauts d'humeur. Aparemment, sa thérapie fut rapide, et éspérons, réparatrice

    Le post ci-dessus est une grosse connerie, ne le lisez pas sérieusement.
