Out of tree kernel images / Lustre image
Sorry, I hit the wrong button (send instead of save) so here we go again:
I took over the ITP (237713) for Lustre from Andres Salomon and
recently Alastair McKinstry also showed interest in this. Both of use
use Lustre at work so there will be some paid time spend on keeping
Now to my question. Lustre needs a specialy patched kernel and builds
a ton (~100MB uncompressed) of kernel modules and support
binaries. How should that be handled?
Would it be OK for lustre to build its own out-of-tree kernel image
and modules? Or would that be too much extra work for the security
team to support?
What is the policy on this kind of thing?
