About CIP kernel maintenance policy for new hardware support backporting


Hiraku Toyooka
 

Hello,

I have a question about CIP kernel maintenance policy.
Can CIP kernel accept backport patches for new hardware support (not
only fixes)?

I read the following document and it seems to describe only acceptable fixes.
https://wiki.linuxfoundation.org/civilinfrastructureplatform/cipkernelmaintenance

On the other hand, Current linux-4.19.y-cip branch accepts some hardware
support patches such as RZ/G2E(r8a774c0) from upstream.
So I wonder if some policy about new hardware support exists.
