[$] A tale of two troublesome drivers

LWN.net - Pet, 04/12/2024 - 15:29
The kernel project merges dozens of drivers with every development cycle, and almost every one of those drivers is entirely uncontroversial. Occasionally, though, a driver submission raises wider questions, leading to lengthy discussion and, perhaps, opposition. That is currently the case with two separate drivers, both with ties to the networking subsystem. One of them is hung up on questions of whether (and how) all device functionality should be made available to user space, while the other has run into turbulence because it drives a device that is unobtainable outside of a single company.

What we need to take away from the XZ Backdoor (openSUSE News)

LWN.net - Pet, 04/12/2024 - 14:55
Dirk Mueller has posted a lengthy analysis of the XZ backdoor on the openSUSE News site, with a focus on openSUSE's response.

Debian, as well as the other affected distributions like openSUSE are carrying a significant amount of downstream-only patches to essential open-source projects, like in this case OpenSSH. With hindsight, that should be another Heartbleed-level learning for the work of the distributions. These patches built the essential steps to embed the backdoor, and do not have the scrutiny that they likely would have received by the respective upstream maintainers. Whether you trust Linus Law or not, it was not even given a chance to chime in here. Upstream did not fail on the users, distributions failed on upstream and their users here.
