Nothing amazing to report

Sometimes linux kernel work is pretty rockin’ but a lot of the time it’s just janitorial stuff. I’ve been doing a lot of that sort of work off and on over the last few months, and am finally almost at a milestone – review of a large set of patches which were mostly backports from later kernels, into one of the Ubuntu variants.

The fear at the outset was that there were patches which we had failed to send upstream. After careful review of hundreds of patches, I found four that needed to be sent upstream. Today I formatted and sent up two of those.

Housekeeping. Never fun but necessary.
