Subject: [GIT PULL] livepatching for 5.5
Date: Mon, 25 Nov 2019 15:14:25 +0100
Message-ID: <20191125141425.qlda25sth5zj66pn@pathway.suse.cz> (raw)

Linus,

please pull from

  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/livepatching/livepatching tags/livepatching-for-5.5

to receive livepatching subsystem update.

=====================================

+ New API to track system state changes done be livepatch callbacks.
  It helps to maintain compatibility between livepatches.

+ Update Kconfig help text. ORC is another reliable unwinder.

+ Disable generic selftest timeout. Livepatch selftests have their own
  per-operation fine-grained timeouts.

======================================

There is expected one merge conflict with ftrace tree. Both add a new
independent selftest.
