Announcing the release of the kernel-ml-4.8.2-1.el7.elrepo package set
into the EL7 elrepo-kernel repository:

The upstream changelog:

The following files are currently synchronising across our mirror sites:



We provide these kernels for hardware testing in an effort to identify
new/updated drivers which can then be targeted for backporting as kmod
packages. Meanwhile, these kernels may provide interim relief to
people with non-functional hardware. We stress that we consider such
kernels as a last resort for those who are unable to get their
hardware working using the RHEL-7 kernel with supplementary kmod

These packages are provided "As-Is" with no implied warranty or
support. Using the kernel-ml may expose your system to security,
performance and/or data corruption issues. Since timely updates may
not be available from the ELRepo Project, the end user has the
ultimate responsibility for deciding whether to continue using the
kernel-ml packages in regular service.

The packages are intentionally named kernel-ml so as not to conflict
with the RHEL-7 kernels and, as such, they may be installed and
updated alongside the regular kernel. The kernel configuration is
based upon a default RHEL-7 configuration with added functionality
enabled as appropriate.

If a bug is found when using these kernels, the end user is encouraged
to report it upstream to the Linux Kernel Bug Tracker [1] and, for our
reference, to the ELRepo bug tracker [2]. By taking such action, the
reporter will be assisting the kernel developers, Red Hat and the Open
Source Community as a whole.

Thank you,

The ELRepo Team.
