    Phoronix: Linux 3.11-rc4 Kernel Brings More Changes

    It's time for another Sunday release of the Linux kernel. While it's out on schedule, the Linux 3.11-rc4 release carries about the same amount of changes as 3.11-rc3, which isn't making Linus Torvalds happy...

    Linus always talks about being clear about what you say and what you mean, but this is like the third time during the 3.11 process he has flip-flopped on whether he likes a bunch of patches. First he yelled at people to stop sending so many pull requests, then he called himself the "master" of pull requests, now he's back to hating it.

    No, he has always been clear that -rc releases must have bug fixes only. He was not happy that in the first -rc releases there were very few of those, because that means it's most likely they would be submitted in later -rc versions, and the closer to release you get, the less patches you want (because you want to have a stable kernel, and not something that accidentally got broken due to the last batch of patches).
