Maybe I’m not asking at the right place, but I figured that somebody who know may be looking at the forum
I was wondering why the altera-opensource/linux-socfpga github was still at latest tag being 4.13, while the mainline has past the 4.15 mark.
I can see continuous activity on kernel/git/arm/arm-soc.git, and even references to a ‘socfpga 4.16’ in the few ‘next’ branches. Also, up to 4.13, the socfpga branches seemed to pretty much follow the mainline dot releases.
Now, I know that a lot of the commits lately in the mainline have been for Spectre/Meltdown, but surely it’s not only because this…
Also, mainline 4.15 seem to have catch-up with many of the socfpga 4.13 specific changes, so if I were to build a kernel, would it be fine to use the mainline 4.15 tag? Is there any major fixes past 4.15? I saw something about USB regression in some devices in 4.15, but mainly Arria10/Stratix10, but I’m targeting Cyclone-V (DE1-SoC).
