Having the feature in the kernel is different from having the
infrastructure available to manage live patches on the computers in an
organization and from having the infrastructure to prepare and test the
live patches.

I won't speculate on how these services will be delivered to end users;
perhaps the best thing to do is to talk with your account representative
if you have one.

I just want to point out that there's a lot more to live patching than
turning on a kernel configuration option.
