We uploaded the 3.5.0-17.26 and 3.5.0-18.27 kernels leading up to Kernel
Freeze this week. These uploads most notable contained a rebase to
upstream stable v3.5.5, updated Highbank patches, additional
Haswell graphics support patches, packaging updates for signing kernels,
as well as misc bug fixes and config updates. With Kernel Freeze now in
effect, only patches which adhere to the SRU policy will be applied.
Additionally, only critical bug fixes will warrent an upload at this
time as we approach our final release.
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:
