This backport patchset fixed the meltdown issue, it's original branch: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/arm64/linux.git/log/?h=kpti A few dependency or fixingpatches are also picked up, if they are necessary and no functional changes.
The patchset also on repository: git://git.linaro.org/kernel/linux-linaro-stable.git lts-4.9-spectrevv2
No bug found yet from kernelci.org and lkft testing.
No bugs is good, but does it actually fix the meltdown problem? What did you test it on?
Oh, I have no A73/A75 cpu, so I can not reproduce meltdown bug.
And why are you making this patchset up? What is wrong with the patches in the android-common tree for this?
We believe the LTS is the base kernel for android/lsk, so the fixing patches should get it first and then merge to other tree.
Any comments are appreciated!
You need to start versioning this changeset, as I have no idea if this is the "latest" one or not, right?> Or have you not sent out this patchset before? How does this interact with the "spectre" patches? Or am I totally confused here?
It is the first patchset for meltdown. Yes, I will resent this patchset with versioning after the renesas board booting fixed.
The meltdown and spectre is 2 different bugs, the fixing patchset are isolated each other. So I did the backport as 2 different patchset. And merging them together is relative simple. I will comming with a merge patch next time, after the meltdown patchset ready.(the kernelci didn't works well in recent days)
