Linux 4.3 rc5

The 4.3 release cycle continues to be fairly smooth - knock wood.
There's nothing particularly worrying here: we had some annoying
fallout from the new strscpy stuff (it's not actually *used* anywhere
yet, but we had build failures on some architectures), and a vfs layer
change uncovered an ancient and fascinating ext[34] bug, but on the
whole things look pretty normal. It's the usual "lots of small fixes
to drivers and architecture code, with some filesystem updates thrown
in for variety". The appended shortlog gives an overview of the
details.

Things also seem to be calming down nicely, although since there was
no network pull this week, we might have a bump from that next rc.

Anyway, if you haven't tried a recent kernel lately, feel free to hop
right in - it all looks pretty good.
