The subject line is confusingly written as if the patches were for the primary
kernels. And there is a Groovy/linux-kvm which should be checked and fixed as
well. So subject should be "[SRU G,F,B,X/linux-kvm] ...". Also the bug report
does not contain a complete SRU justification template and the regression
potential should rather be something like "Early boot code might have been
depending on the net devices being present, however that can be mitigated by
probing for those". And speaking of that, did we check that the packaging of kvm
kernels automatically picks those modules up and into linux-modules?
[also the bug report could be nominated for all the series this should be
considered for]
