Hello RT Folks!

I'm pleased to announce the 4.4.179-rt181 stable release. This release
is just an update to the new stable v4.4.179 version and no RT specific
changes have been made.

You'll notice there is also a v4.4.178-rt180 release available. The
stable v4.4.178 update includes bdf3c006b9a2 ("vmstat: make
vmstat_updater deferrable again and shut down on idle") which brakes
-rt. f01f17d3705b ("mm, vmstat: make quiet_vmstat lighter") fixes this
problem; it's part of the -rt1181 release. Furthermore, Greg queued up
in the patch and it will be part of the next stable v4.4.y release.

You can get this release via the git tree at:


branch: v4.4-rt
Head SHA1: 0da4f74126bb1ff309a97bacd0c7a2fbb8d42553

Or to build 4.4.179-rt181 directly, the following patches should be applied:
