Surprisingly, Linux kernel 4.10.7 comes only three days after the Linux 4.10.6 kernel release, and, according to the appended shortlog, it's quite a big patch that changes a total of 128 files, 1470 insertions and 845 deletions. The biggest part of the patch are, as expected, updated drivers, but we can also see a few architecture and filesystem improvements, as well as updated networking and sound stack. Looking at the changes included in Linux kernel 4.10.7, we can mention updates for the auxdisplay, CLK, CPUfreq, CPUIdle, crypto, DAX, GPU (AMDGPU), HID, HV, hwtracing, iiO, input (joystick, mouse, touchscreen, tablet), IOMMU, MMC, Ethernet (amd-xgbe, Broadcom, Mellanox mlx5), wireless (Atheros ath10k and Marvell mwifiex), SCSI, USB, UWB, VFIO, and Xen drivers.
