Subject Linux 5.16-rc7


To the surprise of absolutely nobody, this rc7 is fairly small.

The stats look pretty normal, with about three quarters being drivers
(networking, input, sound, tee, hwmon, rdma..). Somewhat unusually, we
have a PC keyboard controller (not USB - the old legacy kind) fix in
here - one of the earliest supported hardware still hangs around, and
still gets some probe-time changes for odd hardware.

The rest is mainly some kvm and networking fixes, and a few random
stragglers elsewhere.

Obviously the holidays are a big reason it's all small, so it's not
like this is a sign of us having found all bugs, and we'll keep at
this for at least two more weeks.

Hope everybody had a good Xmas (or insert your preferred alternative
holiday) and I'll wish you a happy new year in advance. Because I
suspect the upcoming week will be even quieter since at least _some_
of this past week was "this is my last pull request before xmas".

Shortlog appended, please do give this a whirl.
