Linux on ARMIt's been a while since having any advancements to report on the live kernel patching front for being able to deploy primarily Linux kernel security fixes without having to reboot the system. There is some new progress on that front to report on now and that is the 64-bit ARM (ARM64/AArch64) support getting squared away.

Torsten Duwe of SUSE sent out the three remaining patches for getting the kernel's live patching framework up and running on 64-bit ARM. These are still work-in-progress patches, but they are available for testing should you be interested in experimenting with ARM64 Linux live patching for increasing the uptime of your 64-bit ARM hardware.
