In this week’s edition: Linus Torvalds announces Linux 4.10, Alan Tull updates his FPGA manager framework, and Intel’s latest 5-level paging patch series is posted for review. We will have this, and a summary of ongoing development in the first of the newly revived Linux Kernel Podcast.

Today's issue was delayed due to your author taking a day off ahead of the US Memorial Weekend Holiday. Since I'll be in Ottawa, Canada over the weekend, the weekend update will likely be delayed until Monday evening.

In today's issue: putting struct inode on a diet, sparse interrupt allocation, union directories, zone reclaim defaults, and firewire interface naming conventions.
