I’ve updated my stable kernel builds to version 4.14.13. This is version is now a longterm supported kernel. The former longterm supported kernel was updated without configuration changes to version 4.4.74. Both kernel branches contain the fix for the latest dirty COW vulnerability.
The kernel builds include the AP1620 WiFi-driver, which needs a binary firmware image you have to download from cubietech’s download server and put it to /lib/firmware/ap6210
The A20 processor on the Cubietruck seems not to be affected by spectre and meltdown.
New in this 4.14.13 release:
- switched CIFS to modern SMB3 protocol by default
- improved EXT4 filesystem efficency
