Linux 4.7 Releases

Linux Planet reports that the latest kernel, Linux 4.7, has released.
The biggest new feature is LoadPin Security, an idea taken from ChromeOS.
"This LSM enforces that kernel-loaded files (modules, firmware, etc) must all come from the same filesystem, with the expectation that such a filesystem is backed by a read-only device such as dm-verity or CDROM... This allows systems that have a verified and/or unchangeable filesystem to enforce module and firmware loading restrictions without needing to sign the files individually." -- Loadpin Commit
