Submission + - Linux 3.12 merge window closes with release of Linux 3.12-rc1 (

hypnosec writes: Linus Torvalds has released Linux 3.12-rc1 marking the first major development in over two weeks for the forthcoming successor of Linux 3.11 kernel. Announcing the closure of Linux 3.12 merge window, Torvalds noted in the release announcement that the window was fairly normal. Dissecting the updates he noted that 73 percent of them are related to drivers, 12 percent related to architecture updates, and 6 percent updates are related to file-systems. The remaining, Torvalds notes, fall under misc category. Emphasizing on some of the merges, Torvalds notes that he liked "scalability improvements that got merged this time around." Torvalds also makes a note about tty layer locking getting resolved, and work on dentry refcount scalability.
