Hi team

I am a new user/developer of starling X and after searching into the
kernel metapatches at:


Some questions came to me :

As far as I can see we are under kernel 3.10 from RHEL RT fork right?
There are some ( actually many ) security and functional changes that
exist in the LTS kernel ( like 4.19 as an example), because of that I
would like to use a more stable kernel into my starling x system

Is there any specific reason why use that specific for from RHEL?

What does starling X think about the migration of these patches ( some
of them are already applied into the latest versions of Linux Kernel)?

What kind of test should I perform to check that my vanilla kernel +
STX patches work as expected?

All feedback is more than welcome

BTW thanks to Mario and Saul for the help on understand more these patches
