Please use this URL to obtain patch:<base>...v<base>-pf<release>.diff


since I'll be moving files to GitHub completely soon.

Converted all tabs to spaces, due to popular demand and bumped to latest LTS. However, this is the last update I'm doing; with the apparent death of TuxOnIce, the -pf-lts variant has no reason to exist. Please, consider switching to linux-pf or linux-ck. If anybody wants it, I'll orphan it.

Indentation of the PKGBUILD is a mess. i.e. a mixture of tabulators and space. Make it uniform (best: avoid tabulators, use spaces).

Well... 3.14 reached EOL, long live 4.4-PF-LTS.

I intend to keep linux-pf-lts at version 3.14, as it is still one of the official's LTS kernels (and it works flawlessly in all my boxes). I won't update to 3.18-LTS or 4.1-LTS unless 3.14 reaches End-Of-Life or I find time and appetite (very unlikely). Please also note that the pf-patchset maintainer doesn't really follow any LTS line but the latest stable.

Therefore, please don't flag it as out-of-date. However, if anybody wants to take over the maintenance of linux-pf-lts and keep it at the most recent upstream LTS, I will gladly orphan it and create a new linux-pf-lts314 or something.

I really don't know :-)

Seriously now, I diligently copy the linux-lts config over to linux-pf-lts in every update and only tweak-in the BFS, TuxOnIce and BFQ options. If CONFIG_CGROUP_CPUACCT is active in linux-lts then it was left out by mistake.

However, I no longer have time to follow every single patchlevel update of LTS kernels; that's the reason I've implemented a "trick" in PKGBUILD to let people update the package on their own (see _patchlevel). When I get the time, I'll sync versions and configs. Thanks for the feedback!

Why the config doesn't have `CONFIG_CGROUP_CPUACCT=y` configuration?

I'm still getting a compile error, even with the linux-lts gcc5 patch:
LD [M] drivers/staging/rtl8187se/r8187se.o
