Build results:
	total: 154 pass: 152 fail: 2
Failed builds:
Qemu test results:
	total: 465 pass: 446 fail: 19
Failed tests:
	<all riscv32>

No major change here, except that arcv2 images now build.
For reference, the riscv build problem is:

cc1: error: '4496' is not a valid offset in '-mstack-protector-guard-offset='

The patch fixing the arm boot problem is queued in pending-fixes.

There is still the warning about missing sha512 code.

[    3.581014] WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 55 at crypto/testmgr.c:5652 alg_test.part.0+0x148/0x460
[    3.581548] alg: self-tests for drbg_nopr_hmac_sha512 (stdrng) failed (rc=-22)

The patch fixing this problem is queued in linux-next.
