According to Linus Torvalds Linux Kernel 4.2 RC2 “this is not a particularly big rc, and things have been fairly calm.
We definitely did have some problems in -rc1 that bit people, but they
all seemed to be pretty small, and let’s hope that -rc2 ends up having
fewer annoying issues.”

He continues “The rc2 patch is roughly one third drivers (drm being the bulk of it),
one third architectures (arm, mips and parisc, a smattering of x86)
and one third “misc”.
