Subject: Clang backports for 4.9 and 4.4
Date: Mon, 19 Nov 2018 10:31:35 -0800
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I'm in the process of preparing backports for building 4.9 and 4.4
kernels with Clang.  Going off of mka's very helpful:, I've prepared the list of SHA's
that were marked UPSTREAM (internal convention used to denote patch
applies cleanly):
But it seems that some of these shas no longer apply cleanly.  I was
thus curious:

1. May I send you a pull request with the patches properly backported?
I'm happy to do the work, just want a green light before backporting
all of these patches.
2. Should I denote in any way if I had to modify any patch to get it
to apply cleanly?  This helps in code review, IMO.  If so, what
convention should I use?
