Yep, that one has been a long time coming, especially so with the
travels by Linus, but that is still all exceedingly fast by proprietary

The bits that are interesting for me include:

nftables, the successor of iptables;
a revamp of the block layer designed for high-performance SSDs;
TCP Fast Open enabled by default;

and a few tweaks to btrfs and also bcache.

All good fun stuff!

Is there interest for such arcane geekieness to be explained at a talk?
