I've just finished compiling 4.9.11 and it seems to work...
Code:
bash-4.4$ uname -a
Linux hp-laptop 4.9.11 #1 SMP Sat Feb 18 16:59:57 CET 2017 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     T6400 @2.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
bash-4.4$

The new writeback throttling options in 4.10 sound like they could be useful on a desktop system. I'm going to give them a try and see how it feels.

Kernels 4.4.51 and 4.9.12 have been released.

The change logs,

https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/ker...angeLog-4.4.51

https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/ker...angeLog-4.9.12

I don't see a fix for CVE-2017-6074 in either one, but maybe I missed it.

I can't find it either. Maybe this works as a mitigation in the meantime since the dccp module isn't loaded:

CVE-2017-6074

Andrey Konovalov discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the
DCCP networking code, which could result in denial of service or
local privilege escalation. On systems that do not already have
the dccp module loaded, this can be mitigated by disabling it:
echo >> /etc/modprobe.d/disable-dccp.conf install dccp false
You can also replace the net/dccp/input.c file in the tarball with the patched version here:
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/ke...h=linux-4.10.y

The fix will be included in kernels 4.4.52 and 4.9.13 currently in stable review:

4.9.13 without any issues so far on my 14.2
Erics instructions work like a charm though they seem dated, they are not.

Same here. Used the source package and config from Dave's Unofficial SlackBuilt Kernels as a base to roll my own. It's nice to have a good config file to use as a base. I really missed that when attempting to build a 4.11 kernel for the new Ryzen system I'm assembling. Way too many new options that I'm unsure how to answer.

I used the original config for 4.4.39? The latest that came with the regular update. Somewhere there was the instruction that it is safe to take the proposals while running make oldconfig. However my kernel is not very slim and I have been looking for config files, but as it seems noone offers some even when for standard laptop configs (thinkpad).
