Linux 4.0 rc2

So rc2 missed the usual Sunday afternoon timing, because I spent most
of the weekend debugging an issue that happened on an old Mac Mini I
have around, and I hate making even early -rc releases with problems
on machines that I have direct access to. Even if it only affected old
machines that actual developers are unlikely to have or at least use.

Today I got the patch from Daniel Vetter to fix it, so instead of
doing a Sunday evening rc2, it's a Tuesday morning one. Go get it. It
works better for the delay.

Other than that little one-liner i915 fix? Not much, actually. It's
been a very quiet week, for being this early in the release process.
Sure, 3.19-rc2 was even smaller, so it continues a trend, but that was
the xmas week. I hope this low volume is just because the 4.0 merge
window itself was somewhat calmer than most recent releases. But I
suspect the real reason is that the driver and networking trees from
GregKH and davem are pending, and didn't make rc2.

We'll see.

Anyway, the shortlog is appended, and testing is appreciated,

Linus
