How to install and update to Linux Kernel 4.13 RC7. Linux Kernel v4.13 RC7 brings most of the changes in drivers and architecture.

Announcing the release, Linux Torvalds wrote of 4.13-rc7, “So here’s rc7, and I still expect this to the the last rc, although the best-laid plans of mice and men.. rc7 is pretty small, with most of the changes in drivers and architecture as usual. That said, this time “most” is only _just_ true, we have enough other changes that drivers and arch fixes is only about 60% of the patch. There’s header files, VM, networking, core kernel, documentation, scripts..”
