That's right, Linux kernel 4.8.2 is here, and it arrives a little over a week after the first maintenance update. According to the appended shortlog and the diff from Linux kernel 4.8.1, the new version changes a total of 52 files, with 487 insertions and 213 deletions. Overall, the Linux 4.8.2 kernel looks pretty small when it comes to changes, with the exception of some ARM and x86 improvements and the updated drivers.
