Linux 4.0 released, Bootlin #7 contributing company

Linus Torvalds has released 4.0 a few days ago, deciding to increment the major number version just because he cannot count up to 20 with his fingers and toes. As usual, LWN gave an excellent coverage of the merge window for 4.0 (which at the time was expected to be called 3.20): first part, second part and third part. LWN also published an article with development statistics about the 4.0 cycle.
