    Phoronix: Linux 3.16.59 Being Prepared With L1TF Patches, Other x86 Speculation Mitigation Work

    While the maintained Linux 4.x kernel branches have all seen a lot of work on L1TF/Foreshadow and other x86/x86_64 speculation execution mitigation work, the Linux 3.16.59 kernel is bringing a load of work for those still riding this old kernel base...

    Basically Debian 7 ELTS kernel and default kernel on Debian 8 LTS.

    Ben also maintains CIP SLTS kernel... that seems aims to be supported like a 50 years or maybe at least 15 but both ways something super crazy

      Sounds useful for folks still running Debian 8 on Powermacs!

      I haven't heard of that 15 year kernel, sounds useful for IoT that actually gets updates (HA!) and phones.
