On October 31, 2016, Linux kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman was proud to announce the release and general availability of the sixth maintenance update to the Linux 4.8 kernel series.
That's right, Linux kernel 4.8.6 is here, only three days after the quite big release of Linux kernel 4.8.5, but don't be fooled into thinking it's a small update because that's not the case. According to the appended shortlog and the diff from last week's Linux 4.8.5 build, it appears that today's Linux 4.8.6 kernel changes a total of 136 files, with 1387 insertions and 854 deletions.
