as you probably know, the more features we backport, the higher will be the maintenance cost overtime so as a strategy, we need to be very conservative.
I sent a mail some days ago about the features backported already by Linaro for their LSK (Linaro Stable Kernel) for your evaluation. I bring today some potential backports related with security features and hardware support that has been identified by Ben H.
* UBSAN support:
* Increased user-space ASLR range for ARM:
* Page poisoning on free:
* SLAB/SLUB freelist randomisation
* Hardened usercopy
* Do Members use SLUB? if not, we should take a look at KASAN support for SLAB
* drm/tilcdc update? (many bug fixes post-4.4)
* AM33xx RTC support:
