That's right, we're talking about Linux kernel 4.10.3, which already landed in the Testing repository of Arch Linux. According to the appended shortlog, the update appears to be quite big and changes a total of 94 files, with 1076 insertions and 712 deletions. We can't even imagine how much work was queued for the Linux 4.10 branch if the maintainers had to split them into two patches released about 72 hours from one another. In Linux kernel 4.10.3, we can notice that there are mostly updated driver, specifically for various graphics drivers like AMDGPU, Intel i915, Radeon, vmwgfx, etc. But there are also updates for the InfiniBand, NVDIMM (Non-Volatile Dual In-line Memory Module), PHY, PWM, s390, TTY, Broadcom (brcm80211) wireless, Marvell mvpp2 Ethernet, HV, Bluetooth, and ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface).
