At Linaro weâve been putting effort into regularly running kernel tests over

capacity grows.

For test buckets weâre using just LTP, kselftest and libhugetlbfs and
like kernels we will add to this list.

I'm sorry, I don't understand this sentance.

My parsing of it is that they will add to the list of tests as well as
to the list of supported kernel versions (and/or maybe architectures ?).


With the 4.14 cycle being a little âdifferentâ in so much as the goal to
have it be an LTS kernel I think itâs important to take a look at some
4.14 test results.

Grab a beverage, this is a bit of a long post. But quick summery 4.14 as
released looks just as good as 4.13, for the test buckets I named above.

Thanks for doing this testing and letting us know.
