cPanel Hardened Kernel for Centos 7.x - to prevent symlink attacks

As a server administrator I would like cPanel to provide a hardened kernel for CentOS 7 similar to the one provided for CentOS 6, in order to help secure my server against symlink attacks and to resolve the Security Advisor alert on CentOS 7 servers.

I still see no answers here... EA4 keeps sending warnings through maldet that the system is vulnerable and I believe that most system administrators (especially when setting up new servers) use centos 7 nowadays.

Yes I wish they'd do this as I can't find a solution to sym links using Centos 7, suphp etc. The only solution is to turn on the bluehost option, which is not recommended. A hardened kernel would be perfect.
