Backporting the kernel with SmPL - Luis R. Rodriguez, SUSE

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As we evolve as software developers we not only have to consider how to better evolve

This talk is intended for Linux kernel developers and kernel tree maintainers. No
