Linux kernel 4.11.12

July 25, 2017 — BarryK
I have compiled kernel 4.11.12, with two third-party patches.
Firstly, aufs, secondly realtek 8723bu wifi driver.

I also brought back the "usb-storage" patch, which is a small patch that logs some extra USB memory probing to dmesg.

Configured the kernel as before, except one change, disabled Device Drivers --> SATA --> legacy ISA PATA Support.
This was builtin, now have completely removed it. This is CONFIG_PATA_LEGACY.

The wifi driver is needed for the Alpha Litebook, and the CONFIG_PATA_LEGACY caused slow bootup.
