Linus Torvalds commented within the 6.5-rc2 announcement:

“No surprises here: this thing looks very normal. The patch stats are about 60% drivers, with networking and gpu drivers being the bulk of it, but there’s a little bit of everything in there: nvme, pin control, x86 platform drivers, HID, etc etc.

Ignoring drivers, it’s a mixed set of fixes all over: architectures (x86, powerpc, RISC-V, xtensa), some core networking (mainly netfilter), core kernel (tracing, scheduler), filesystems (erofs, smb client), and documentation and selftests.”

Linux 6.5 solid must debut across the finish of August. Keep tuned to Phoronix for extra articles at the Linux 6.5 kernel checking out and function benchmarking.
