Works for me x86_64. Gnome, Core2 Quad, 4 GB, Radeon HD 3650.
This update has been pushed to testing.
I run Dirty COW test with 4.7.9. The exploit does not work. All OK.
I confirm CVE-2016-5195 kernel test. No regression.
The dirtycow exploit was taking too long on previous kernels, so the fact that it still doesn't work on this kernel doesn't mean much. I think my system may be too slow.
