Chuckle. I guess there are days like this…
“I’m announcing the release of the 3.10.9 kernel.
If you don’t use networking, you can stick with 3.10.8, otherwise I’d recommend updating to this version.”
Indeed, the changelog shows a reversion:
Author: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Aug 20 15:32:57 2013 -0700
Revert “genetlink: fix family dump race”
This reverts commit aab4f8d490ef8c184d854d5f630438c10406765c, commit
58ad436fcf49810aa006016107f494c9ac9013db upstream, as it causes
3.10.8 was released the same day at 11:59:09 EST.
I am not sure from whence this comes as there is no discussion on lkml… but I do use networking and like Greg K-H’s kernels. You can give Linux-3.10.9 a try from kernel.org.
