Are there any special algorithms for maximum independent set of line graphs? Could this special case be in $\mathsf{P}$?

Finding a maximum independent set in $L(G)$ is equivalent to finding a maximum matching in $G$. For more, and a fast polynomial-time algorithm that work for e.g., line graphs, see [1].
