Looks like this patch has already been backported in April. It would be nice if the wiki had a changlogs.opensuse.org for the kernels.
Nice idea, but i think you have no idea just how much information that would be
Leap 42.2 currently contains Kernel 4.4.11
The upstream changelogs for 4.4.11 are the *combined total* of the following text files:
https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.4.1 https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.4.2 https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.4.3 https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.4.4 https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.4.5 https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.4.6 https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.4.7 https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.4.8 https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.4.9 https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.4.10 https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.4.11
That is over FOURTY THOUSAND lines of changelog entries alone. Not code. _changelog_
includes another 633 lines of changelog entries added in the last *7 days* since the inclusion of 4.4.11 in OBS
(Side note: if anyone ever says anything about our kernel guys not doing enough work I intend to point them to this thread in the archives, good work!)
Or to put it another way..if you want to single-handedly copy/paste and maintain thousands of lines of information in the wiki, be my guest, but I think you have better things to do with your time... so maybe a better technique would be to use Google and grep to scan changelogs for the things you are interested in?
