Hi Nicolas,

Sorry for the late answer, but was caught by various things on both
personal and private sides, which had higher priority than arm-dev.
Which kernel version do you need ?
We asked for feedback around newer kernel on the list, but lack of
feedback so nothing really pushed to mirror.centos.org, but here are the
last kernel we built for armhfp/armv7 :

The goal was to use the same LTS kernel (so 4.4.x when discussed) across
AltArch (when not using the distro one, which - for armhfp - doesn't work)
You can find for example
http://armv7.dev.centos.org/repodir/arm-kernels/4.4.14-201/ (but now I
see that on
http://mirror.centos.org/altarch/7/experimental/x86_64/Packages/ there
were other ones, like  4.4.22-201, which I just submitted to the armhfp
builders, so will appear later)
