Linux 5.0-rc2
Announcing the release of Linux 5.0-rc2, Linus Torvalds wrote:
So the merge window had somewhat unusual timing with the holidays, and I was afraid
 that would affect stragglers in rc2, but honestly, that doesn’t seem to have 
happened much. rc2 looks pretty normal. Were there some missing commits that missed
 the merge window? Yes. But no more than usual. Things look pretty normal. What’s a 
bit abnormal is that I’m traveling again, and so for me it’s a Monday release,
 but it’s (intentionally) the usual “Sunday afternoon” release schedule back home. 
I’m trying to not surprise people too much. As to actual changes: all looks fairly
 normal. Yes, there’s a fair number of perf tooling updates, so that certainly 
stands out in the diffstat, but if you ignore the tooling and just look at the
 kernel, it’s about two thirds drivers (networking, gpu, block, scsi..), with the
 rest being the usual mix of arch updates (ARM, RISC-V, x86, csky), with some 
filesystem (btrfs, cifs) and vm fixes.
