Can you open PRs so that these changes can get merged? I will then build new images.
Sure, created them now:
* First part: https://salsa.debian.org/kernel-team/linux/merge_requests/79
* Second part:
Unfortunately both patches weren't included in the latest (maintainer?)
commits/releases - not that I expected that ;-). I keep rebasing them
(due to constant changes to `debian/changelog`) but would it help if
people (with influence :-)) upvote these patches with that "thumbs up"
Much appreciated, gentlemen. Wish I could do more than offer my system up
as a test platform, but so it goes... I'll be happy to help with determining
the "actual problem which is yet unknown" with the alpha generic kernel, once
my system is back up and running :-).
Hey, if someone knows how to use `kernel-wedge` manually, we could build
a netboot image right away, assuming that `kernel-wedge` can use the
existing linux-image-[...]-alpha-smp package to build the needed udebs.
That would not require a rebuild of the linux-image-[...]-alpha-smp
package and save us a lot of time.
