Linus Torvalds在周日下午发布了Linux kernel 3.1 RC2。这是一个相当平静的版本，RC2没有提供任何新的功能，只是修复错误。
Hey, nice calm first week after the merge window. Good job. Or maybe people are just being lazy, and everybody is on vacation. Whatever. Don’t tell me. I’m reasonably happy, I want to stay that way.
That said, I would be happy if it calmed down further. 300+ commits for -rc2 is good, but please make me even happier for -rc3 by ONLY sending me real fixes. Think of it as “fairly late in the -rc series”, because I really want to compensate for the merge window being fairly chaotic.
