Linux Kernels 4.10.12, 4.9.24 LTS and 4.4.63 LTS Bring x86 and OrangeFS Changes

Considering the fact that nearly three days had passed since the release of the Linux 4.10.11, 4.9.23 LTS and 4.4.62 LTS kernels, the Linux 4.10.12 and 4.9.24 LTS kernels change a total of 78 files, with 993 insertions and 459 deletions for Linux 4.10.12 and 938 insertions and 441 deletions for Linux 4.9.24, while Linux kernel 4.4.63 LTS is again a smaller patch changing a total of 48 files, with 518 insertions and 216 deletions. The Linux 4.10.12, 4.9.24 LTS and 4.4.63 LTS kernels are here to improve support for the OrangeFS, CIFS, and EXT4 filesystems, as well as for the x86, PA-RISC, PowerPC (PPC) and MIPS hardware architectures, update the networking stack with small IPv4, SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol) and SunRPC fixes, and update more drivers, this time for things like ACPI, CPUFreq, GPU (mostly Nouveau and Intel i915), IRQ Chip, NVDIMM, PWM, RTC, media, video, input, and SCSI.
