I believe that RedHat jumped the gun a bit with gcc on 7.0 and included a
'alpha release' that does a few things differently. See the gcc site for
details. I would stick to 6.2 and stick all the (appropriate) patches on
including the kernel one. The standard 6.2 kernel has some security bug and
further does not allow the current ssh to work.

As a general rule, I find it better to wait for x.1 or x.2 with redhat...
