SubjectRe: PATCH 1/1] AX.25: Close socket connection on session completion
From
Date

Hello David,

Unless I'm doing something wrong, it seems this patch has only been
applied to the newest
kernel:

Git/linux-stable$ git tag -l --contains
4a7d99ea1b27734558feb6833f180cd38a159940
v4.7-rc6

How can we get this critical fix applied to the other stable kernel
versions? I would really hate
to depend on all the various Distro packagers to miss on picking this up
as this is a critical
toxicity fix.
