Update to Linux Kernel 4.13 rc2 on Ubuntu Systems

Update to Linux Kernel 4.13 rc2 on Ubuntu Systems. Kernel 4.13 rc2 brings various hardware and driver improvements. Announcing the release, Linus wrote” Linux 4.13 rc2 – Things are chugging along, and we actually had a reasonably active rc2.

Normally rc2 is really small because people are taking a breaher and haven’t started finding bugs yet, but this time around we have a bigger-than-average rc2. We’ll just have to see how that translates to the rest of the release cycle, but I suspect it’s just the normal variability in this thing (and because I released -rc1 one day early, I guess rc2 was one day longer than usual despite the normal Sunday release).

Changes all over, although the diffstat is dominated by the new vboxvideo staging driver. I shouldn’t have let it through, but Greg, as we all know, is “special”. Also, Quod licet Iovi, and all that jazz – Greg gets to occasionally break some rules. If you just ignore that new staging driver, the remainder is still about half driver patches (networking, rdma, scsi, usb). The rest looks normal too: architecture updates (x86, sparc, powerpc), filesystem (nfs, overlayfs, misc), networking and core kernel. And some new bpf testcode.

Time for some more testing, people. You know the drill.
