Saturday afternoon was the Torvalds-rc5 release of the world – this time without further delays.
The development has calmed down, even when the outlier with-rc4 indeed was only on the plaster work in staging branch due. Spring cleaning seems fashionable, they cleaned up the USB-option-drivers are among the most striking changes – there were some device IDs of the manufacturer ZTE removed, rearranged others. The Fibre Channel driver for QLogic qla2xxx devices regained attention in the form of corrections, as well as the graphics component of Samsung’s System-on-chip architecture EXYNOS. Two minor errors of the network file system NFSv4 were also eliminated.
Otherwise, again, some minor changes to the file system including both btrfs and other drivers. Among other things, the driver of the USB-serial converter chip ti3410 to a device ID has been expanded so that it now sets made by Abbott Diabetes Care , a manufacturer of blood glucose monitors for personal use, works in which this chip is installed. Sometimes it’s really interesting to see what Linux to support everything in secret – Whether someone will use this opportunity as well?
