Feature #10298: Upgrade to Linux 4.x
Drop custom value for kernel.perf_event_paranoid sysctl
When we can ship an kernel 4.x we should drop our kernel.perf_event_paranoid sysctl customization introduced via #11421.
Test suite: take into account that we're shipping the VirtualBox modules only for the 32-bit kernel.
Revert "Changed sysctl option of kernel.perf_event_paranoid to the value of 2."
This reverts commit fa1647cda8d063e340c8c7ebc44e55d62138e47e.
By default, Debian's Linux 4.x sets this sysctl to 3, which is a value
introduced using a small bit of the grsec patch. So let's not hard-code
a less safe custom value.
#5 Updated by intrigeri over 3 years ago
- Subject changed from Change kernel.perf_event_paranoid sysctl to 3 to Drop custom value for kernel.perf_event_paranoid sysctl
- Description updated (diff)
(Debian's Linux 4.x sets it to 3 by default, which is better than what we're doing on #11421, and also better than explicitly setting the value to 3.)
