Among the material in this second round of ACPI and power management updates for Linux 4.6 include fixes to the Intel P-State scaling driver, CPUFreq core clean-ups, ACPI CPUFreq driver updates, an intel_idle driver fix for Skylake-H systems, Intel Xeon Phi x200 support in the intel_idle driver, and various other fixes and minor improvements.
