Hi! Here is my fourth regression report for Linux 4.8. It lists 14
regressions I'm aware of. 5 of them are new; 1 mentioned in last
weeks report got fixed.

As always: Are you aware of any other regressions? Then please let me
know (simply CC regressions@xxxxxxxxxxxxx). And pls tell me if there
is anything in the report that shouldn't be there.

Ciao, Thorsten
