Linux Kernels 4.11.7 and 4.9.34 LTS Bring AMDGPU Improvements, Updated Drivers

Looking at the appended shortlogs for each kernel release, we can notice that they both include pretty much the same changes. For example, there are various improvements to the support for the ARM, MIPS, PowerPC (PPC), ARC, FR-V, PA-RISC, s390, SH, TILE, SPARC, Xtensa, and x86 hardware architectures, as well as to the Btrfs, F2FS, Hugetlbfs, and Configfs filesystems. Besides the usual core kernel and mm changes, both Linux 4.11.7 and 4.9.34 LTS kernels updated numerous drivers, in particular the AMDGPU, Intel i915, USB, TTY, MFD, InfiniBand, CPUFreq, PHY, and Virtio ones. The networking stack also received improvements to the mac80211 wireless framework and the IPv6 implementation. An SELinux fix is also available in Linux kernel 4.11.7.
