[$] The rest of the 4.16 merge window

By corbet At the close of the 4.16 merge window,
non-merge changesets had been merged; that is 5,000 since last week’s summary. This merge window is
thus a busy one, though not out of line with its predecessors — 4.14 had
11,500 changesets during its merge window, while 4.15 had 12,599. Quite a
bit of that work is of the boring internal variety; over 600 of those
changesets were
device-tree updates, for example. But there was still a fair amount of
interesting work merged in the second half of the 4.16 merge window; read
on for the highlights.
