Uploading linux (4.8.4-1)

I intend to upload linux version 4.8.4-1 to unstable during this week.
As this is a new upstream version, there is of course an ABI bump.

Some of the notable changes:

* Include HTML documentation built with the new upstream documentation
  system using Sphinx
* Enable various hardening features
  - Some of the changed defaults are incompatible with some userland
    applications.  These are noted in the changelog along with how to
    override them, and there will also be a NEWS entry in linux-latest
* [arm64] Support for many new platforms and devices, including RPi 3
* [arm64] Support for ACPI and for larger address spaces
* [rt] Updated and re-enabled
