Bruce, Yocto kernel folks:

Here is another 4.12.x stable update "extension" primarily created for
the Yocto project, continuing on top of the previous v4.12.27 kernel.

Hopefully people using 4.12.x have their plans well underway to move to
a newer kernel, as I have been indicating for several releases now that
my maintenance work on 4.12.x is coming to a close.  There will probably
be one more release in roughly two weeks, assuming we don't encounter
any high profile CVE issues in the interim.

There are just over 80 commits here, based on commits chosen from what
was used in existing 4.14.x stable releases.

I've put this 4.12.x queue through the usual testing that I figured made
sense, which is in line with that listed explicitly in previous release

I did the signed tag just as per the previously released 4.12.x versions.

Please find a signed v4.12.28 tag using this key:


in the repo in the kernel.org directory here:


for merge to standard/base in linux-yocto-4.12 and then out from there
into the other base and BSP branches.

For those who are interested, the evolution of the commits is here:


This repo isn't needed for anything; it just exists for transparency and
so people can see the evolution of the raw commits that were originally
selected to create this 4.12.x release.
