Linus Torvalds Announces Linux Kernel 4.4 Release Candidate 3, Everything Is Normal

Users can now test the third RC build of Linux 4.4

Linus Torvalds wrote release message about Linux Kernel 4.4 RC3 on linux kernel mailing list
The changes look fairly normal: just under 60% driver updates (of
which almost half is GPU updates, this time mainly skewed due to some
nouveau firmware update patches), about 25% arch updates (mostly
arm[64], but some changes in x86, s390, powerpc, nios, mips, m68k,
arc..), and about 10% filesystem updates (mostly btrfs and nfs). With
the rest being "misc" (mainly header files).

The appended shortlog gives some overview of the details. I don't
think there's anything particularly exciting, although that obviously
depends on whether some particular issue ended up affecting you or
not. Most of it is pretty tiny random fixups.
