Linux Kernel 4.2 Rc5

Linux Kernel 4.2-RC5 released

Linus Torvalds recently announced the fifth release of Linux Kernel 4.2-RC5, which is immediate availability for download and testing. According to Torvalds, it’s looking like 4.2 might be one of the releases needing more than the usual seven rc releases – things aren’t calming down like I would wish, and we’ve still had some fairly annoying issues pop up. For example, there was a core VFS fix merged just yesterday – the bug itself was old, but some changes in this merge window ended up triggering it much more easily.
