Kernel Maintenance

Recent update:

  • Working on the next kernel update
  • Problems with mirrors. They are not very reliable. It requires human intervention.

Weeks 28 to 30 report:

  • Kernel features provided by Members reviewed.
  • Renesas backported patches being reviewed and merged
  • Maintenance Summary:
  1. Follow LTS cycle: Merging LTS patches to CIP kernels every month aprox.
  2. Adding Kernel Features: Adding configurations sent to Ben has been reviewed and merged.
  3. Renesas Board Support: Chris has sent out some patches and Ben revied and applied those. Renesas will send everything they would need to the upstream before merging them into the CIP Kernel, if possible.
  • ToDo: set up on building time warnings for unsecure/unsupported configs
  • ToDo: before the 4.4 lts period ends, map supported config symbols to supported files/directories so that upstream fixes to unsupported parts of the kernel can be ignored when backporting fixes to 4.4-cip
