Oh great. I didn't even get a full day's use out of 4.12.6!
Thanks for the heads up.

GazL --

I did get ~33 hours on 4.4.81

But this is definitely unusual -- the mean time between each of the 82 linux-4.4.x releases has been just over 7 days.

The 4.4.82 release is definitely out of band ...

-- kjh

# count days-per-release for linux 4.4.x ( 82 releases )
Code:
B=$(date2int 2016-01-10) ; E=$(date2int 2017-08-13) ; echo "scale = 2 ; ( $E - $B ) / 82" |bc
7.08
# script date2int - count days since 1899-12-31
Code:
#!/bin/sh

if [ $# -lt 1 ]
then
   Dates="`date '+%Y%m%d'`"
else
   Dates="$@"
fi
echo $Dates |
gawk '
BEGIN {

   # Move to BEGIN {} for Date2Int( )

   BoTDate = "18991231"              # Beginning of Time ...

   MtDAry[  1 ] =  0
   MtDAry[  2 ] = 31 + MtDAry[  1 ]  # for symmetry ;-)
   MtDAry[  3 ] = 28 + MtDAry[  2 ]
   MtDAry[  4 ] = 31 + MtDAry[  3 ]
   MtDAry[  5 ] = 30 + MtDAry[  4 ]
   MtDAry[  6 ] = 31 + MtDAry[  5 ]
   MtDAry[  7 ] = 30 + MtDAry[  6 ]
   MtDAry[  8 ] = 31 + MtDAry[  7 ]
   MtDAry[  9 ] = 31 + MtDAry[  8 ]
   MtDAry[ 10 ] = 30 + MtDAry[  9 ]
   MtDAry[ 11 ] = 31 + MtDAry[ 10 ]
   MtDAry[ 12 ] = 30 + MtDAry[ 11 ]

   # Move to BEGIN {} for Date2Int( )
}
function Date2Int( InDate,   L, Y, M, R, i )
{
   gsub( /[^0-9]/, "", InDate )

   if (( L = length( InDate )) != 8 )
      return ( 0 )

   if ( InDate < BoTDate )
      return ( 0 )

   Y  = substr( InDate, 1, 4 ) - 1900
   M  = substr( InDate, 5, 2 ) + 0
   R  = substr( InDate, 7, 2 ) + 0
   R += Y * 365 + int(( Y - 1 ) / 4 )
   Y += 1900

   R += MtDAry[ M ]
   
   if ( M > 2 )   # Look for Leap
   {
      if ((( Y % 400 ) == 0 ) || ((( Y % 4 ) == 0 ) && (( Y % 100 ) != 0 )))
         R ++
   }
   return ( R )
}
# main
{
   for ( i = 1 ; i <= NF ; i ++ )
      print Date2Int( $(i) )
}'

For the most part, this batch appears to be fixing regressions.

For developers who tangle with Embedded Linux periodically,
where does one find a list of the Linux Kernel features
which have changed since the well-documented 2.6 release ?
Is there a good URL or new book series documenting these
later versions ?

Boy, howdy !

I would love to see such a Document or book.

Being an old fart^H^H^H^Hcodger, I felt like I understood the 2.6.x kernels pretty well ( about as well as an application developer needed to understand the Kernel )

Anyhow, there is so much churn with the current Kernel Development Model, not to mention BIOS-vs-uEFI and on, and on, I imagine a dead-tree-based book would be a losing proposition ...

It would be obsoleted before the ink dried on the paper ( more likely before ink was even applied to paper ) !

I did find this file: /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes which in addition to spelling out mimimal requirements for the 3.0 Kernels, it also lists a few Major Architectural changes in the 3.0 Kernel.

Anyhow, I don't see any other obvious file in the Kernel Tree relating to *_ALL_* the changes since the 2.6.x series.

Maybe Jonathan Corbet or another author at lwn.net has written one-or-more articles that describe what "we're" after ( https://lwn.net/Search/DoSearch ) ?

I've not waded thru the list myself but lwn.net can be a great learning resource.

HTH.
