Smart Array B120i driver (hpvsa) for RHEL 7.2

I am wondering why HPE hasn't provided an updated version of the hpvsa-driver yet, which can be used with the RHEL 7.2 kernel (release date was 19th of November).

My ProLiant Microserver Gen8 shipped with the B120i RAID-Controller, which requires an closed source driver from HPE. Without the updated driver version I am not able to install security updates of the kernel.

Am I missing something? Any help is appreciated!

Well, there is still no updated driver in the download area of the support pages, but... I found one on the FTP server. I don't know if it is an official release, but it worked for me, so I decided to let others know. Here is the link:
