catbus1Dear Ubuntu kernel team, I am working with the Cisco SNIC (SCSI NIC) team. SNIC is a new driver accepted in upstream 4.2.4. I see our latest Wily kernel is based on upstream 4.2.3. Can someone please tell me about when we will be based on 4.2.4? Or should I work with them to submit a patch to Ubuntu kernel? 17:25
henrixcatbus1: 4.2.4 (and 4.2.5) patches should be applied to the wily kernel soon(ish).  next week we start a new 3-week SRU cycle, and usually apply stable patches to our kernels during the 1st week17:37
catbus1henrix: Thank you. One more question, is a new driver consider a stable patch? It's accepted in 4.2.4: http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/jejb/scsi.git/commit/?id=24136f 2c0b3bd55d98bdfe097331a4ab7eb1869b17:39
catbus1probably this is a better link: https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git/tree/drivers/scsi/snic?id=refs/tags/v4.2.417:41
henrixcatbus1: new drivers/features are not acceptable for stable kernels.  but the wily kernel is *not* a stable kernel -- we simply apply upstream 4.2 stable kernel patches, but it has lots of other ubuntu-specific patches17:44
catbus1henrix: Just want to make sure I fully understand this. So snic will be in wily kernel after the next SRU cycle. The wily kernel will become HWE kernel for 14.04 in Jan/Feb. The snic driver will be in-box in 14.04.4, right? 17:57
henrixcatbus1: correct.  and although i'm just not sure about the next 14.04 point-release dates, it's likely that the linux-lts-wily kernel will be available before that ;)18:01
catbus1henrix: Great, thank you very much. 18:02
rtgkamal, http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git/commit/?id=2459ee8651dc5ab72790c2ffa99af288c7641b64 should go to 4.2 stable18:03
kamalrtg, 4.2-stable is still gregkh's responsibility.  That commit bears a Fixes: line, but the commit it says it fixes didn't land until 4.3-rc1 ...18:17
kamalrtg, so how sure are you that its actually relevant for 4.2?   I expect that gregkh will _not_ apply that one to 4.2 automatically.18:18
rtgkamal, I've already submitted the patch on the k-team list. It appears to fix an issue related to bug #149908918:20
ubot5bug 1499089 in linux (Ubuntu Wily) "Please enable kconfig X86_LEGACY_VM86 for i386" [Wishlist,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/149908918:20
kamalrtg, ok relevant for wily, but not for 4.2 mainline -- got it.   ok, issue resolved   :-)18:22
