Linux 4.2 is out

From: Linus Torvalds
Date: Sun Aug 30 2015 - 14:53:07 EST

So judging by how little happened this week, it wouldn't have been a
mistake to release 4.2 last week after all, but hey, there's certainly
a few fixes here, and it's not like delaying 4.2 for a week should
have caused any problems either.

So here it is, and the merge window for 4.3 is now open. I already
have a few pending early pull requests, but as usual I'll start
processing them tomorrow and give the release some time to actually

The shortlog from rc8 is tiny, and appended. The patch is pretty tiny too.
