Re: umn.edu situation and its effects on stable/cip

Hi!

A Linux Foundation colleague has offered to do an analysis for projects to
assess the situation.

"I can run an analysis of ... source code looking for commits from the two
PhDs who are currently known, and also look for any commits from an @umn.edu
email address."

If this is of interest, I'll look into this offer further.
Well, there's big series from Greg:

Date: Wed, 21 Apr 2021 14:57:55 +0200
From: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
To: linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
Subject: [PATCH 000/190] Revertion of all of the umn.edu commits
Message-Id: <20210421130105.1226686-1-gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

If noone commented on the patch, yet, analysing it may not be bad
idea. There is a lot of fixes in there, and we don't want to revert
those.

(But I believe this is so hot issue that there will be enough manpower
on it.)

Best regards,

Pavel
