Linux 4.11-rc8

So originally I was just planning on releasing the final 4.11 today, but while we didn't have a *lot* of changes the last week, we had a couple of really annoying ones, so I'm doing another rc release instead.

The most noticeable of the issues is that we've quirked off some NVMe power management that apparently causes problems on some machines.
