Linus Torvalds is writing Linux code again

As reported by Michael Larabel on the Phoronix website, Linus Torvalds (Finnish programmer, creator of the Linux kernel and Git version control system) has not had time to write new, original code for the Linux kernel in recent years. Currently, he works mainly with the development team, reviewing other people's code before committing it to the kernel tree. However, he did manage to write some new code for Linux 6.4.

Last week, Linus Torvalds merged his own "x86-rep-insns" branch in the "merge window" of the Linux kernel 6.4. In his code, Torvalds focused on cleaning up the "x86 memory copy code", and you can see his changes here.
