Description

linux-image-amd64 in sid now depends on linux-image-4.17.0-1-amd64. Sooner or later 4.16 will be removed from sid and it won't have security support in Debian anymore, so if we don't upgrade to 4.17 in Tails 3.9, we'll probably have to do that in one of the following bugfix releases, which feels a bit scary.

I've seen all automated test suite scenarios pass. 0.5 hour should be enough for a quick code review and booting the ISO on 1 bare metal machine. If you want to, and can, test on more hardware than this, feel free to do so up to 1h (total).

Works on my hardware (I could only test one machine)

Thanks. I've merged the state you've reviewed into devel.

Unfortunately (not really but well) a new src:linux was uploaded with an ABI bump and thus the package name changed => pushed another commit to pick it up. Note that if that package had been updated in Debian with no ABI bump between your review and the freeze, we would have silently & blindly taken this upgrade. So I won't request another review and will only test this on my local hardware + run the full automated test suite before merging.

Full test suite results look good: all green on my local Jenkins except one scenario that always fails here but passes on lizard, and each individual scenario passed at least once accross the 2 full runs on lizard (each of these runs having 1-3 failures, which is pretty good).
