Linux Kernel 4.4

Date: Sun, 6 Dec 2015 16:13:15 -0800
Subject: Linux 4.4-rc4
From: Linus Torvalds

Another week, another rc. We had a few more commits than last week (mostly due to the networking fixes merge), but on the whole it’s been pretty calm. Everything looks fairly normal: about 70% drivers – network drivers, gpu, sound, scsi dominate. On top of that we have 15% core networking, and the rest is split between arch updates and “misc” stuff all over (including some vfs and core kernel fixes).
