-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
A new version, v0.0.20200105, of the backported WireGuard kernel module for
3.10 <= Linux <= 5.5.y has been tagged in the git repository.
Please note that until Linux 5.6 is released, this snapshot is a
snapshot rather than a secure final release.
== Changes ==
* qemu: bump packages and support m68k properly
* qemu: re-add dependency on wireguard sources
* qemu: only compare archs when deciding whether to use kvm
Our test suite continues to grow. Check out the tremendous set of
architectures we're now building on https://www.wireguard.com/build-status/
* socket: mark skbs as not on list when receiving via gro
The real purpose of this release. Certain drivers will pass gro skbs to udp,
at which point the udp driver simply iterates through them and passes them off
to encap_rcv, which is where we pick up. At the moment, we're not attempting
to coalesce these into bundles, but we also don't want to wind up having
cascaded lists of skbs treated separately. The right behavior here, then, is
to just mark each incoming one as not on a list. This can be seen in practice,
for example, with Qualcomm's rmnet_perf driver. This lead to crashes on
OnePlus devices and possibly other Qualcomm 4.14 devices. But I fear that it
could lead to issues on other drivers on fancy servers, too.
