LINUX KERNEL --
One week after sending in the main power management and ACPI updates for the Linux 4.11 kernel, Rafael Wysocki has served up a second batch of feature updates for this next kernel version.

This secondary PM update for Linux 4.11 includes fixes for a cpuidle menu governor problem, a fix for the Intel P-State operation mode, updates to the generic power domains, hibernation core cleanups, and other basic changes within the power management realm. Before anyone asks, no, there aren't any targeted Ryzen changes with this code.

Perhaps more interesting are the turbostat updates for this Intel utility that lives within the kernel Git tree. TurboStat now has Geminilake support, better Bay Trail SoC support, several new options, more verbose output by default, and other changes.
