You will need someone to help with that process, i can do that if you
are willing to wait till the first week of May.

Another thing i want to throw in, paraphrasing another conversation:

We should consider for EL7,  building everything (as far as possible) as
PIE/RELRO, swapping out dlmalloc in libc for something else (probably
jemalloc). Perhaps also use -finit-local-vars (especially in the kernel)
and -fwrapv.

Thoughts ?
