SubjectLinux 4.7: Reported regressions as of Saturday, 2016-07-02
Hi! Here is my fourth regression report for Linux 4.7; a day earlier then usual.
It has 14 entries;
* 2 of them are new
* 9 regressions (not included here) were fixed since the last report(¹)
* 1 made it to the list after last Sunday (thx for telling me about it Kalle!),
but was fixed before I compiled this one
* 2 turned out to not be regressions at all
* 1 was a duplicate

Fixes for 4 of the regression in this report are heading towards mainline.
One of the remaining regressions is likely fixed already.

Please let me know if a regression is missing in the list; or if
there is something on the list which shouldn't be there.

HTH, CU, Thorsten
