ARM Status

  • UUID support: Found a way to support an initrd-less kernel using GPT, an hybrid mbr and the ROOTUUID boot parameter, kernel seems to be good already. lp709245 ("ARM SMP scheduler performance bug"): Still bisecting latest P kernel trying to find where the fix for this issue has been embedded in the TI BSP - whenever i turn on the the corresponding upstream errata (PL310_ERRATA_769419) the kernel hangs on boot, so there must be a previous patch clashing in there. Now i'm down to a ~160 commits window. P/omap4: Nothing new to report this week.

Status: Precise Development Kernel

  • Last week we rebased to v3.2.4 and uploaded. We've recently rebased to v3.2.5 and plan to upload shortly. Note that Beta-1 is on the horizon with Beta Freeze approximately 2 weeks away. We'll be prepping our Beta-1 kernel next week. If there are any patches which need to land, submit them now. I'd like to also note that we've opened the Q git repo for anyone interested (git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-q.git). At this time, it is strictly for development/testing purposes only and will not be supported until Q officially opens in the archive. Important upcoming dates:
    • Thurs Feb 23 - Beta Freeze (~2 weeks)
    • Thurs Mar 01 - Beta 1

Status: CVE's

  • Currently we have 73 CVEs on our radar, six new CVEs were added this week. See the CVE matrix for the current list: Overall we have pushed the backlog down by approximatly 2 CVEs this week: We have also pushed another CVE back to security for review. This backlog is increasing.

Status: Stable, Security, and Bugfix Kernel Updates - Oneiric/Natty/Maverick/Lucid/Hardy
