Hi all,

I just wanted to send these to the list, so everyone could see the
reference kernel that we are planning for the upcoming release.

I have other patches to drop 4.19, 5.2 and make this the default
kernel for the various reference platforms as well, but I'm not
sending them, since we still have two outstanding issues:

1) mips64 init is segfaulting after / during some self tests.


2) x86 musl is getting a gpf on many commands:


I've looked into both, and don't have any great ideas on how to debug
or fix them.

So if anyone has ideas, or wants to poke at these, feel free to follow up.
But as of now, we still can't merge the v5.4 kernel as the reference due
to these remaining problems.


The following changes since commit ca3993cc4b13d4e661228cee6fb9448adfd0a4ba:

  bitbake: tests/fetch: Allow wget upgrade tests to run against a local server (2020-01-22 15:56:39 +0000)
