The 3.6 merge window is closed

Linus has released 3.6-rc1 and closed the
merge window for this development cycle. "I do have two more pull
requests that are at least tentatively pending: there's the uapi header
file disintegration from David Howells and the tcm_vhost merge from
Nicholas Bellinger, both of which came in in time. So I'll take another
look at those later. The pain of another header file revolution doesn't
excite me, but we'll see." (See this
article
for a description of the header file work). All told, nearly
8,600 changes were pulled into the mainline during this merge window.
