Kernel – 4.14.11-rc1 Still breaks NVIDIA, and Won’t be Fixed?

Just tried the ‘stable-review’ patch for the ‘stable’ Kernel – 4.14.11-rc1, and the same NVIDIA problem is there, and it seems the kernel devs won’t do anything: http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1712.3/02608.html

So – it seems the patch is now a permanent requirement for all subsequent 4.14 releases..  (see http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=2168 )..

And… It seems the unwritten rule of ‘don’t break stuff during stable kernel releases‘ no longer applies?

  1. It does, mostly. But out-of-tree modules – and closed source ones in particular – are rarely considered “stuff” to be covered by this rule.
