Subject: v5.7: new core kernel option missing help text
Date: Wed, 3 Jun 2020 18:31:50 +0100
Message-ID: <20200603173150.GB1551@shell.armlinux.org.uk> (raw)

Hi,

A new kernel configuration option ("SCHED_THERMAL_PRESSURE") was
recently added, but has no help text. This is most unhelpful when
trying to configure the kernel, since one does not know what the
effect of answering yes or no to this option would be.

Please supply a proper help text when adding core kernel options
so that people can make an informed decision when answering the
prompt, rather than just guessing.

One suggestion on IRC has been that this option has something to
do with climate change.

Thanks.
