Subject: Linux 3.19-rc1 - merge window closed

So it's been a day less than two weeks, and the merge window is closed.

Considering how much came in fairly late, I find it hard to care about
anybody who had decided to cut it even closer than some people already
did.   That said, maybe there aren't any real stragglers - and judging
by the size of rc1, there really can't have been much. Not only do I
think there are more commits than there were in linux-next, this is
one of the bigger rc1's (at least by commits) historically. We've had
bigger ones (3.10 and 3.15 both had large merge windows leading up to
them), but this was definitely not a small merge window.

Anyway, we've got changes all over the place, including a new
architecture (nios2). My "short mergelog" is appended, and as usual I
want to point out that that credits the people sending me the changes,
which is generally not necessarily at all the same thing as the people
actually writing the code, even if there is obviously overlap.

In the "big picture", this looks like a fairly normal release. About
two thirds driver updates, with about half of the rest being
architecture updates (and no, the new nios2 patches are not at all
dominant, it's about half ARM, with  the new nios2 support being less
than 10% of the arch updates by lines overall). The remaining one
sixth is "misc": networking, header updates, documentation,
filesystems, tooling, and core kernel (in pretty much that order).

Obviously, with the holidays coming up, I'd expect that the next few
weeks are pretty quiet, but we'll see. I do hope that people will have
time to test this all in between all the eggnog,
