3.10 Linux Kernel Development Rate

While working on the latest statistics for the yearly Linux Foundation
“Who Writes Linux” paper, I noticed the rate-of-change for the 3.10
kernel release that just happened this weekend:

Every year I think we can’t go faster, and every year I’m wrong.

Note, the “number of employers” row is not correct, I haven’t updated
those numbers yet, that takes a lot more work, which I will be doing
this week.

Spreadsheet source, and scripts used to generate the numbers, and
“cleaned up” kernel logs can be found in my kernel-history repo here.
