Linux 4.19-rc1

So two weeks have passed, and the merge window for 4.19 is over.

This was a fairly frustrating merge window, artly because 4.19 looks to be a pretty big release (no single reason), and partly just due to random noise. We had the L1TF hw vulnerability disclosure early in the merge window, which just added the usual frustration due to having patches that weren't public. That just shows just how good all our infrastructure for linux-next and various automated testing systems have become, in how painful it is when it's lacking.
