Thanks for your feedback.

I've compiled the 4.7.7 and 4.8.1 this weekend, and works well on CentOS7, but not using the same boot as the original image (using zImage and dtb).
Do you have a process to generate the RPM like yours?

I will try your versions too.

Hi all,

I'm searching the good process to upgrade the kernel on CentOS 7 armv7hl.

Actually the 4.2 kernel is not supporting crypto drivers for sunxi, and
need to be patched, or need to use a newer kernel (I've got very bad
performance using openvpn for example. Using newer kernel increase by 200%).

Do you have a process to update correctly the kernel or generate the rpm
file for it?

I've tried to "make rpm" using the defconfig existing, but I got:

scripts/Makefile.fwinst:43: *** mixed implicit and static pattern
rules. Stop.
make[2]: *** [_modinst_post] Error 2
erreur : Mauvais statut de sortie pour /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.GAPIw3 (%install)

I'm using bananapi M1 (I've helped to validate the actual image of CentOS).
Thanks a lot, 
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 :
http://armv7.dev.centos.org/repodir/arm-kernels (http://armv7.dev.centos.org/repodir/arm-kernels/)

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 (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 (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)
