Linux 4.2 rc3

Desktop-as-a-Service Designed for Any Cloud ? Nutanix Frame

Normal Sunday release schedule, and a fairly normal rc release. There
was some fallout from the x86 FPU cleanups, but that only hit CPU's
with the xsaves instruction, and it should be all good now.

About 50% drivers, with the rest being half "architecture updates
(x86, arm, m68k, s390, arc) and the rest spread out all over.
Networking, tools, filesystems, etc.

I'd have liked rc3 to be slightly smaller than it is, but I don't
think there's anything _particularly_ scary going on.
