Linux 4.6-rc6

Things continue to be fairly calm, although I'm pretty sure I'll still do an rc7 in this series. There's nothing particularly scary in here - there's a fix for a long-standing infiniband interface problem, but since you actually have to have the hardware for that, it's not like that is going to affect all that many people, and the workaround was pretty straightforward. The bulk of the rest is really just the normal random noise. Drivers (sound, gpu, ethernet being the bulk of it), architectures (arm, s390, x86), networking is the bulk of it. Shortlog appended for your edification, Linus Read more Also: Linux 4.6-rc6 Kernel Released, Codenamed "Charred Weasel"
