Linux 4.9 rc5

Back to my Sunday schedule, things look fairly normal. Calm first part
of the week, with most fixes coming in towards the end.. I'm used to
it by now.

Things have definitely gotten smaller, so a normal release schedule
(with rc7 being the last one) is still looking possibel despite the
large size of 4.9. But let's see how things work out over the next
couple of weeks. In the meantime, there's a lot of normal fixes in
here, and we just need more testing.

The stats for rc5 look extremely boring (which is a good thing). Two
thirds driver updates, 10% arch updates, 10% filesystems, the rest
"misc". Nothing really stands out, with the possible exception of the
re-enablement of "-Wmaybe-uninitialized" again after Arnd fixed it all
up.

So go out and test,

Linus
