There is a change being worked on upstream (or rather mm) to do this more
Why aren't these upstream?
The idea was that we should find out upstream why the APIC error occurs
and so not silence it, but don't do that for the distro production kernels.
Hmm, I thought I had submitted that one but it seems to have gotten lost
I submitted that one. The maintainers thought it was not needed, but I'm
still not convinced. Right now modprobe aes without this patch still
does load the wrong code I think.
Why are these patches not upstream:
They are. Did you not check mainline?
These might go upstream, but I really doubt it. Note
that kgdb hooks
might be in mainline soon,
No, the basic hooks have been in forever. kgdb adds a few new one,
but most of them are actually misguided and KDB typically doesn't need them.
so these might need to be majorly rewritten
to handle these hooks. For now we'll keep them, but I really doubt
their usability. Does anyone use this?
It is the current standard kernel debugger for SUSE and afaik
used by a lot of people.
Might be still needed for Xen
This patch seems valuable to me.
This is needed for init. There is unfortunately some philosophical
disagreement on that one for mainline (I tried to submit it a long time ago).
Maintainer is Werner Fink.
Probably would make sense to resubmit it -- i'm a little tired of
always seeing the "kernel does not support TIOCGDEV" messages
when I boot a mainline kernel.
This one is a valuable debugging tool and should be probably
patches.suse/twofish-2.6 (We gotta be able to drop
now, right? If not, why isn't it
No we can't because that would break updates with encrypted file systems.
