CVE-2021-33909 and 3.10.0-1160.36.2.el7.x86_64 was published on July 20, 

GPFS has not been tested on this RHEL kernel yet per our FAQ 
For both IBM Spectrum Scale and IBM Spectrum Scale, The 
latest tested RHEL kernel is 3.10.0-1160.31.1.el7 (RHEL 7.9) tile now.

3.10.0-1160.36.2.el7.x86_64 is a kernel errata of 3.10.0-1160. According 
to IBM Spectrum Scale FAQ, it's a supported kernel version (IBM will 
update kernel support list if incompatibility issues were found in 
subsequent tests)

Kernel errata can be applied to the current kernel version unless they are 
explicitly listed in the FAQ as not supported. Always validate kernel 
changes including errata with IBM Spectrum Scale in a test environment 
before rolling out to production. Always rebuild the portability layer 
after any kernel changes.
