Linux 4.6 is out

It’s just as well I didn’t cut the rc cycle short, since the last week
ended up getting a few more fixes than expected, but nothing in there
feels all that odd or out of line. So 4.6 is out there at the normal
schedule, and that obviously also means that I’ll start doing merge
window pull requests for 4.7 starting tomorrow.

Since rc7, there’s been small noise all over, with driver fixes being
the bulk of it, but there is minor noise all over (perf tooling,
networking, filesystems, documentation, some small arch fixes..)

The appended shortlog will give you a feel for what’s been going on
during the last week. The 4.6 kernel on the whole was a fairly big
release – more commits than we’ve had in a while. But it all felt
fairly calm despite that.
