There are still a lot of pending stable patches in the queue, well
over 400 of them to be specific, so some of your favorite/pet patches
might not be included in these releases. Please be patient as I dig
out from this backlog over the next few weeks. If there are specific
patches that you just _must_ have included in a stable release soon,
please let me know.

This is the start of the stable review cycle for the 4.1.17 release.
There are 127 patches in this series, all will be posted as a response
to this one. If anyone has any issues with these being applied, please
let me know.

Responses should be made by Fri Jan 29 18:07:17 UTC 2016.
Anything received after that time might be too late.

Build results:
total: 139 pass: 138 fail: 1
Failed builds:

Qemu test results:
total: 95 pass: 93 fail: 2
Failed tests:

arm64:allmodconfig fails to build due to a crash in recordmcount, which
is caused by 'recordmcount: arm64: Replace the ignored mcount call into nop'.
That bug can be fixed by applying upstream commit c84da8b9ad37 ("recordmcount:
Fix endianness handling bug for nop_mcount"). However, that does not help,
because after applying this patch the build is then still broken due to
'arm64: mm: use correct mapping granularity under DEBUG_RODAT'.

The arm64 qemu tests fails to to a bug inherited from mainline
(arm64:allmodconfig is also broken in mainline).
