Linux kernel backports review
This page documents GSoC project ideas for Linux kernel backportings effort. The Linux kernel functionality from future kernels are backported to older kernels through backports . Some subsystems tend to have their own backport work as independent projects. We should be able to unify backport work as much as possible through a unified framework and allow users to select which parts they want to compile for their target kernel. When providing backport work we also should prioritize working properly upstream.
