Kernel Log – Coming in 3.7 (Part 5): CPU and platform code

Filed under
Linux

Reading between the lines in the release email for Linux 3.7-rc6, it seemed that everything was pointing to a release date for Linux 3.7 around the first weekend in December. The release email for the seventh pre-release version, by contrast, suggested that there perhaps might be a further release candidate after all. Each RC usually puts the final release date back by about a week, with further delays likely only if the kernel developers need to undertake extensive bugfix changes requiring a lengthy test phase.

The description of changes to the processor and platform code which follows, concludes our "Coming in 3.7" Kernel Log series. The first four articles in the series looked at changes merged into Linux 3.7 in the areas of filesystems and storage, networking, infrastructure and drivers.
