The wifi card in my new Lenovo Thinkpad T470s is not supported.
A quick test with a kernel from Kernel:stable (4.11.3-6.g3a35823-default) shows
that the driver was added after kernel 4.4, because 4.11.3 works fine.

The exact type of card is:

It would be great if the driver could be backported, so that this also works in
the future Leap 42.3 version.
