    Your main issue is that you are using Ubuntu, please stop.
    It's an Intel problem though, not specific to Ubuntu.

      Uh no. His link was talking about a backporting issue on the Ubuntu side.
      Patches to workaround Meltdown/Spectre are not supposed to break the kernel and make it unbootable.

        Ah I didn't even click the link. I assumed it was people crapping on Ubuntu 17.10 for an Intel problem again. Apologies.

        Though the kernel patches are hardly Ubuntu specific.

          Yeah, there must have been some screwup on the Ubuntu maintainer side, which is why I am/was flaming Ubuntu.
