kernel news – 15.12.2012

Posted: December 15, 2012 in kernel

-Tomi Valkeinen has fbdev changes, Jeff Garzik has libata updates, Michal Simek has microblaze changes,
and Olof Johansson has arm-soc updates:

Here is the last batch of branches for 3.8. It’s wrapping up merges for
SPEAr and socfpga, some additional contents for Exynos and shmobile and
a large update for mvebu/kirkwood.

For kirkwood, we’re working on figuring out the workflow better with the
submaintainers, they have a rapid pace of development and end up with a
lot of interdependent topic branches. So we grouped them in a topic on
their own this merge window; something we’re trying to avoid overall.

Same procedure as last time, merge conflicts documented in each request
and *-resolved branches pushed for reference.

And thanks for your tolerance of merge conflicts in this merge window,
it’s been a relatively bad one and we’ll work to avoid more of the silly
ones for 3.9.

>From here on out it’ll mostly be fixes, and possibly a few straggling

-Nicholas A. Bellinger updates target, James Morris updates security, and that’s
it for now.
