What was done engineering wise?

We received a freeze exception this week and uploaded the 3.5.0-17.28 kernel. This most notably contained some critical bug fixes for the following:

  • 1061599 - beagle: omap3: usb is dead

  • 1021471 - clone() hang when creating new network namespace

  • 1030233 -not have bluetooth usb 0489:e046 Foxconn / Hon Hai

  • 717970 - After sleep, key presses get lost and trackpad is jittery

As usual, we also uploaded this kernel to the ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/q-lts-backport PPA to facilitate testing of the 12.10 kernel in 12.04. Please test and let us know your results.

What's about to land that might impact the other teams and release as a whole?

Nothing at this time.

    • Fixed in Quantal, but want it SRU'd for Precise as it will affect anyone running a 12.10 kernel in 12.04
  • 994255 - bcmwl-kernel-source bcmwl kernel module failed to build [fatal error: asm/system.h: No such file or directory]
