Linux 5.12-rc6 Released

While last week Linus Torvalds was becoming concerned over the size of the kernel at this stage of development, over the past week it’s trended down lower. In fact, Torvalds referred to it as a “positively tiny” update in his Easter day message.

If this trend holds, Linux 5.12 stable should be out in two weeks and won’t need additional release candidates. As for the changes found in Linux 5.12-rc6, it’s the usual smothering of random fixes at this stage.
