Presently, gcc plugin and hardened usercopy changes go via that tree: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/kees/linux.git/refs/heads https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/kees/linux.git/log/?h=for-next/gcc-plugins https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/kees/linux.git/log/?h=for-next/usercopy https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/kees/linux.git/log/?h=for-next/kspp > What is the merge path for kernel hardening patches please? This depends on where stuff a change is landing. For example, arch-specific things (like KASLR improvements) go via the per-architecture trees. Smaller system-wide things go via Andrew Morton's "mmotm" tree. Larger system-wide things, or things without an obvious maintainer, go via my trees. > I am asking this because the next merge window can't be far away.

Since it's small, I think it should likely go via akpm's tree. However, I tend to carry stuff in a separate kspp tree on kernel.org just so it can get some build and run testing by the 0day bots. -Kees -- Kees Cook Pixel Security
