Kernel requirements or requests for server

Registered by Stefan Bader on 2011-04-29

This would be a pool/follow-up session to bring together the kernel and the server team to discuss any new requirements for the kernel arising from server projects, improvements (config options for example, or packaging), flavours, or anything else that needs clarification.

Whiteboard

* Improve module inclusion for virtual flavor (or possibly introduce extra-modules sub-package)?
* How do we want to approach dom0 support?
* How to get the patches for seccomp mode 2 into Oneiric (depends on when they are deemed to land)=
* pull [and track] Amazon Linux AMI kernel

Work items for oneiric-alpha-2:
[stefan-bader-canonical] backport xen blkback for Xen Dom0: DONE
[stefan-bader-canonical] verify and test Xen Dom0 configuration: DONE

Work items for ubuntu-11.10-beta-1:
[jjohansen] Integrate the seccomp mode 2 patches into Oneiric: DONE

Work items for ubuntu-11.10-beta-2:
[stefan-bader-canonical] Investigate improving virtual kernel inclusion list (maybe move to hybrid with using both inclusion and exclusion) (since other modules will now be put into an extra package, this is not needed): DONE

(?)
