Update to latest upstream stable release, Linux v4.6.4

For those with Skylake CPUs, please note that there may be instability with a recent microcode update. Read https://www.happyassassin.net/2016/07/07/psa-failure-to-boot-after-ker nel-update-on-skylake-systems/ and look for a system firmware update before installing the kernel.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
