Christmas is over, and New Year's Eve looms, but there is no rest for kernel developers, and rc7 is out there.

[ Looks at actual rc7 patch ]

Ok, clearly there _is_ some rest for kernel developers, because rc7 is
pretty tiny. I think a third of the patch is from the sparc updates,
and those weren't that big either.

The rest is other architectures (x86, parisc, mips, arm, arc), drivers
(gpu, sound, mtd..) and some build updates. But it is all pretty

I expect more of the same for next week, when I'd almost certainly
ready to just release the final 4.4, but will probably do an rc8 just
to not open the merge window while people are still recovering from
the holidays.
