Hm, I don't agree. If an embedded Linux device uses Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communications, won't vulnerabilities affecting those parts of the kernel need to be patched?

Examples:
https://www.linuxkernelcves.com/cves/CVE-2019-17133
https://www.linuxkernelcves.com/cves/CVE-2019-16746
https://www.linuxkernelcves.com/cves/CVE-2019-9506

I believe some of these could be exploitable without accessing the device or gaining local privileges.
I agree with you Jesse and that's why we've been moving most of our
customers to Linux mainline. Most vendor BSP does not have stable
updates.
