Linux 4.11.0 remains codenamed the "Fearless Coyote." Linus said of the 4.11 kernel in the release announcement, "So after that extra week with an rc8, things were pretty calm, and I'm much happier releasing a final 4.11 now. We still had various smaller fixes the last week, but nothing that made me go "hmm.."."
