Whiteboard

[jcrigby, 2012-19-10] linux-linaro seems to not build with u8500_defconfig at the moment so hoping lt can help.
[andrey_konovalov, 2012-19-10] The build failure with u8500_defconfig should not affect Linaro-Ubuntu. This error is due to u8500_defconfig not having CONFIG_IPV6. By default CONFIG_IPV6 is set to "m", and this doesn't work due to commit 68490099ef1474ec06068289b257fdcb2e006d5c originating from the android topic. Android assumes CONFIG_IPV6=y. And both the Android and Ubuntu builds use CONFIG_IPV6=y.
[rsalveti, Oct 24, 2012] Not to be integrated during this cycle, needs to be moved to 12.11 and worked together with the STE guys to get it to the way we need (working with the nano image).
[jcrigby, Nov 15, 2012] nearly done, moving all jobs to 3.7 including new snowball job.
[jcrigby, Nov 23, 2012] this is done but there may be issues since the 3.7 packaging is new.
[fboudra, 2012-11-23] Mark as implemented. We have LP: #1081904 to track the issue.

Meta:
Headline: Kernel packages updated to reflect the latest development trees from Linux Linaro and the Landing Teams.
Acceptance: Build scripts available for all the kernel trees supported. Packages published at Overlay/Kernel PPA.
