Welcome to the KernelTeam FAQ! The aim of this page is to provide an up to date list of common questions that we get. We encourage you to update this document when something is missing so it becomes a core source of information for the project.
Can I get a patch included in Ubuntu's kernel?
The Ubuntu kernel config produces huge packages
Our build includes CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO in order to produce linux-debug-image packages. We then manually strip the modules after build.
If you re-use our config for your own build, your best bet is to change this line in the config:
# CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO is not set
