Well i'm exited to see this. Thanks, +1 for sharing. I don't normally follow the kernel development to enthusiastically because most of the features go over my head. My main computer is a Thinkpad laptop, so i'm always happy to see improved Intel drivers. Hopefully it will increase battery life because i've recently began o use Windows again after a long period of absence and i'm pretty shocked at how much better the battery life is compared to my Gnu/Linux partitions, even with battery saving kernel parameters active on them.
In all fairness though, Lenovos version of Windows came with many preinstalled programs, and defiantly some that optimize Windows with the hardware.

Subject Linux 3.7-rc7
A week ago, I had even considered skipping -rc7 entirely as things had
been so calm, but decided that there was little reason to hurry the
And oh, how sadly right I was. -rc7 is out now, and is not at all
smaller than the previous rc's, and in fact slightly scarier. For some
reason the block layer came up on the radar, and there are md, scsi
and generic block layer changes in there. So we definitely want
another week of testing, and hopefully things really are solid.
There's also a few filesystem fixes (reiserfs, xfs and ext3) and
various other driver updates (sound, networking and drm).
