Re: Safe to upgrade to a Community BSP?

Val Kondratenko

Does anyone know when meta-freescale plans on releasing a new version of their kernel (i.e.-imx)?
Or where that information could be available?

Hello Val,

The 5.12.x is based on mainline. It is totally safe and include very small set of changes on top of upstream.

I recently got tasked with upgrading linux kernel (which we get from freescale), to fix some vulnerabilities.

I am new to this, with all engineers with previous experience in this area no longer with company.

To fix the vulnerabilities, will need to upgrade to kernel rev 5.12.

Noticed that only a community branch of this (5.12.x+fslc) is available. Latest freescale (imx) releases/branches are still at 5.4.

I do so, my organization has previously used on freescale/imx releases.

Is it generally safe to use the community releases? Have their problems with bugs/instabilities with them?

Thanks in advance,
