Dirty COW

Hi i.MX Community,


I noticed there was a BSP/Linux release from NXP on 2016-10-10, "L4.1.15_2.0.0", but the kernel fix for Dirty COW was committed on 2016-10-18.


I just started working on an SABRE board (IMX6Q-SDB) and I am new to NXP, board bring-up and Yocto. With that said, these are my questions:

  • Does NXP provide security updates?
  • I kind of have the feeling this is something I am going to have to patch myself somehow in Yocto but my searches haven't return anything meaningful on fixing dirty COW in Yocto.
    • Any guidance on this?
    • Would it work if I just patch the kernel like they did here?
