The 4.11 kernel has been released

By corbet The 4.11 kernel has been released.
So after that extra week with an rc8, things were pretty calm, and I’m
much happier releasing a final 4.11 now.

Some headline features in 4.11 include:
a new perf ftrace command
restarting the work of better integrating the perf and ftrace subsystems,
I/O scheduling support for the multiqueue block subsystem,
journaling for device-mapper RAID 4/5/6 volumes,
SipHash support,
some swapping scalability improvements,
a new LZ4 compression implementation,
the new statx() system call,
and more. As always, see the KernelNewbies 4.11 page
for lots of details.
