Roadmap to Linux Kernel 3.7

Linus has just released Linux Kernel 3.7-RC5, which means we might have Linux Kernel 3.7 gets released before the end of this year. Usually, Linus released a new RC once a week, so if we have like RC-7 or even worse RC-8, we will still make it on December.

But that would create some schedule changes on the merge window of Linux Kernel 3.8, since usually by the end of the year, most of the Linux Kernel developers are on holidays and since the merge window is only two weeks, i think most of the big changes are going to be pushed early of  the merge window, assuming the merge window is opened on first week of December.
