[OCLUG-Tech] 4.5 kernel changes

Does anybody also keep track of the Linux kernel repo too?

Some nice things this time too:

    commit 5cfe6d8adb57bd390bedc604be84cf8ff6808e1c
    Merge: fec65bd c1e64e2
    Author: David S. Miller <davem [ at ] davemloft [ dot ] net>
    Date:   Tue Dec 15 23:26:52 2015 -0500

        Merge branch 'sock-diag-destroy'

        Lorenzo Colitti says:

        Support administratively closing application sockets

        This patchset adds the ability to administratively close a socket
        without any action from the process owning the socket or the
        socket protocol.


So you know when mutt is in that uninterruptible state because your

I'll let you look at the rest of the commit online.  More interesting

UML's still alive too apparently.
