Regression Testing

Would it be valuable to add a section or article on doing kernel regression testing using git? Ideally, such an article would cover everything from git clone to the bug-report itself.

Given that we are a highly up to date release, we do live on the edge of new commits. It seems likely that we are some of the first in the "general" public that encounter regressions and I'd like to encourage people to track down these issues in a decent manner.--stefanwilkens (talk) 08:31, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

This sounds like a good idea, please go on and try to interlink the new article with the others it's related with. In general, keep Help:Style#Hypertext metaphor in mind ;) -- Kynikos (talk) 13:56, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
General instruction is covered by Bisecting bugs now. Close. --Fengchao (talk) 13:10, 22 November 2015 (UTC)


Whatever Gensplash was, it appears now not to be a patchset, but rather a set of utilities for init. [Reference page] Why is it mentioned here? T1nk3r3r (talk) 18:39, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

There does exist one kernel patch in fbsplash. But I agree with you that both Fbsplash and Reiser4 link could be removed. When people needed the feature, they will find the patch from related pages, not from this page.--Fengchao (talk) 13:13, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

More info about ZEN kernel?

I believe we need a better explanation about what linux-zen does and how it differs from mainstream linux kernel. GitHub link in this article is not informative at all. Can we have a list of features with description? NeoTheFox (talk) 09:45, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

This should be described upstream. See also [1]. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 09:57, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
I agree with NeoTheFox. We need to clarify the main features. The link provided by Lahwaacz is fuzzy. What are the specific features which vanilla kernel does not have?--Xan (talk) 10:41, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
