Description

The -201 build is an incremental build. it contains several fixes for known bugzillas and one fix for a known oom regression.


This is a rebase to the 4.7.2 kernel. The 4.7.2 update contains a number of important fixes across the tree.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
