SubjectLinux 4.7: Reported regressions as of Sunday, 2016-07-10
Date
Hi! Here is my fifth regression report for Linux 4.7. It lists 10
regressions I'm currently aware of; 2 of them are new; 1 of those
seems to be a a side effect of a fix for another regression.

The report also mentions 3 regression that I removed from the list, as
it looks like those issues are no regressions.

Find also details on 4 regressions that were fixed since the last
report(¹)

As usual: Please let me know about any regression missing on the list
or if it contains something which shouldn't be there.

HTH, CU, Thorsten
