Community stable kernel maintainer, Greg Kroah-Hartman has announced that he will choose one kernel version as long-term maintenance target candidate every year, and keep it maintained for 2 year from its original release. To eliminate your inhouse security maintenance burden, it is extremely important idea to adopt community LTS version kernel when you develop products. However, at the same time industry people, especially embedded industry developer wants to choose cutting-edge silicon to gain your product advantage. Unfortunately, such new device support code can not be found at long-term stable kernel in reality. LF/CEWG had been working to find a solution for this timing-gap issue. It is a LTSI kernel that is an enhancement of community LTS and can contain various newer code. In this session, I want to introduce how can you can run long-term stable kernel on top of cutting-edge silicon using LTSI and Yocto environment.
