Kon-Can anyone here help explain this, and what impact it might have on desktop users? https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/12/27/220:15
daxhttps://lwn.net/SubscriberLink/741878/eb6c9d3913d7cb2b/ has more info on the KPTI patch. There's a lot of speculation right now that it has security impact, but not a whole lot of actual firm facts. Once everything's sorted out upstream, if it has security impact (and thus a CVE), I'd expect Ubuntu to get involved at that point and issue updates.20:24
daxfor right now, public discussion is pretty much just "wait and see" as far as I know20:25
tsimonq2Hello :)22:39
tsimonq2I'm having trouble finding information about when 4.14.0-13.15 is due to migrate to bionic, I see there's a block-proposed bug but I can't find where the workflow is documented (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/kernel-sru-workflow doesn't seem to have info about it, correct me if I'm wrong)22:40
bjftsimonq2, we didn't want to promote 4.14 to -release while everyone was on vacation22:42
tsimonq2bjf: Oh, right :)22:42
tsimonq2That's fair.22:42
bjftsimonq2, it should be happening "real soon now" though since most of us are back22:43
tsimonq2I only ask because it seems that disables CONFIG_SPI_INTEL_SPI_PLATFORM, and I want to do Alpha 1 next week, but I want to make sure nobody's affected by that bug that isn't already, if I can help it...22:44
tsimonq2bjf: Sure, I'll stick around here.22:44

tsimonq2(Please do let me know if there's anything I can do to help, though.)22:49
bjftsimonq2, if you want you can test the -proposed kernel with is 4.1422:51
tsimonq2bjf: Sure.22:53
tsimonq2bjf: Seems to work fine here, anything in specific you'd like me to test?23:03
daxis the plan for bionic to release with 4.14 or 4.15?23:09
tsimonq2(4.14 seems logical because it's an LTS kernel (iirc?) but I'm not on the Kernel Team)23:10
bjfdax, the plan for now is 4.1523:10
daxbjf: thanks, that's what i read a few months ago, good to hear it's still the plan23:11
tsimonq2Oh, TIL, was unsure, cool :)23:12
daxfor whatever it's worth (probably not much), 4.15 from the mainline ppa has been fine for me so far on bionic, i grabbed it because of amdgpu DC23:13
