Works for me. I tried some CVE-2016-5195, but could not get it to function on older kernel, so I can't easily verify that that hole is fixed here - but, at least the new kernel does actually work.

Tested on rpi2, highbank and beaglebone black. Working as expected.

Overall, no issues found on bare metal (old i686 laptop). The kernel regression test fails (https://apps.fedoraproject.org/kerneltest/logs/13491) but, since it failed with the last two kernels too, it's not a "real regression" by this one (perhaps i686 is not fully supported by the suite?).
