stable-p-u and P9 security patches

Frédéric Bonnard
Hi,

several patches have been pushed upstream for next in 4.9.y linux kernel
concerning additional Spectre/Meltdown fixes on P9 for the new DD2.3
processor revision :
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/stable-queue.git/commit/?id=45d80ddf5e0c5fa43507709537559d1ed4583e9d

I guess they'll be pushed into next 4.9.169 in the coming days :

http://www.kernel.org/
http://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/stable-queue.git/log/

When does the team plan to refresh the kernel for stable-p-u ?
Can we have something equal or greater than 4.9.169 to have those P9 security patches ?

Thanks a lot,

F.

This will happen in due course, but probably not until after the next
point release (9.9 on 27th April).
