Update To Linux Kernel 4.11 RC1 On Ubuntu

Linux Kernel 4.11 RC1 has been released. Install and update the Linux Kernel 4.11 RC1 on Ubuntu Systems. Announcing the release, Linus wrote:

“So two weeks have passed, the merge window is over, and 4.11-rc1 has been tagged and pushed out. This looks like a fairly regular release. It’s on the smallish side, but mainly just compared to 4.9 and 4.10 – so it’s not really _unusually_ small (in recent kernels, 4.1, 4.3, 4.5, 4.7 and now 4.11 all had about the same number of commits in the merge window).

It _does_ feel like there was more stuff that I was asked to pull than was in linux-next. That always happens, but seems to have happened more now than usually. Comparing to the linux-next tree at the time of the 4.10 release, almost 18% of the non-merge commits were not in Linux-next. That seems higher than usual, although I guess Stephen Rothwell has actual numbers from past merges. Now, about a quarter of the patches that weren’t in linux-next do end up having the same patch ID as something that was, so some of it was due to just rebasing. But still – we have about 13% of the merge window that wasn’t in linux-next when 4.10 was released.”
