Kernel 4.7-rc2 is out and brief details of changes from -rc1 are here: http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1606.0/03592.html
After all the later-rc breakage with 4.6, I tested the latest patched NVIDIA drivers, and VMware, with this version, and all the previous 4.6/4.7 patches for VMware 12.1.1, and the 4.7 patches for NVIDIA 367.18 and 361.45.11 still work. See http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=1748 and http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=1750 for details..
