Linux Kernels 3.16.41 and 3.2.86 Released with Networking and Filesystem Changes

Linux kernels 3.16.41 and 3.2.86 are now available for download if you’re using a GNU/Linux operating system powered by any of these long-term supported (LTS) branches. However, they are small patches that include minor changes to the networking and filesystems areas. Looking at the changes included in the Linux 3.2.86 LTS and Linux 3.16.41 LTS kernels, we can mention an updated networking stack with various IPv4, IPv6, and DCCP (Datagram Congestion Control Protocol) improvements, fixing ip6gre_err() invalid reads, freeing of skb too early for IPV6_RECVPKTINFO, and an infinite loop in tcp_splice_read().
