Hmm, 4.5.0 boots on my GTA04A4.
BTW: You remember my problems I have when booting from 3.7 into 4.x (aka doing shutdown -r 0, select another portition in BL menu)? Maybe we have some nasty race condition here.
Not tested any 4.6 yet.

What about automating stuff to test some basic functionality automatically
(and run a get_maintainer.pl evil_commit | apply_hammer_on_developers_finger ;)?
Select a minimum set of patches to test basic things on
linus-next, like it boots and displays something.
