This is the start of the stable review cycle for the 3.2.71 release.
There are 110 patches in this series, which will be posted as responses
to this one. If anyone has any issues with these being applied, please
let me know.

Responses should be made by Wed Aug 12 11:00:00 UTC 2015.
Anything received after that time might be too late.

A combined patch relative to 3.2.70 will be posted as an additional
response to this. A shortlog and diffstat can be found below.

Was thinking I would see upstream commit b6878d9e03043695dbf3fa1caa6dfc09db225b16, overlooked?

Has been backported by at least Debian in their 3.2 kernel, version 3.2.68-1+deb7u3, to fix CVE-2015-5697.

Maybe this upstream commit is too new and so it will show up in a later 3.2 stable version?
