If the kernel is an unsupported one, the hook should exit with a return code of 1. However, in the Ubuntu Error Tracker we can see some crashes with unsupported kernel versions e.g.: https://errors.ubuntu.com/oops/2733d742-284e-11e6-a745-fa163e839e11 DKMSKernelVersion: 4.6.1-040601-lowlatency https://errors.ubuntu.com/oops/0a1afefc-253c-11e6-9082-fa163e192766 DKMSKernelVersion: 4.6.0-040600-lowlatency If the intent really is to block creation of these reports, then let's do that.
