I'm trying to bisect the bug, but I have some problem doing it. I have cloned the branch hwe of git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu- xenial.git, using "git clone -b hwe git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu /ubuntu-xenial.git"
Then I have built the kernel (just to test the build process) using "fakeroot debian/rules binary-headers binary-generic binary-perarch" and this worked as expected. Then I started bisecting using "git bisect start Ubuntu- hwe-4.13.0-32.35_16.04.1 Ubuntu-hwe-4.10.0-40.44_16.04.1", which seems to work as expected: Bisecting: a merge base must be tested [c470abd4fde40ea6a0846a2beab642a578c0b8cd] Linux 4.10 The build command ("fakeroot debian/rules binary-headers binary-generic binary-perarch") fails with : "/usr/bin/fakeroot: line 175: debian/rules: No such file or directory" There is no more debian directory, I don't understand how this git repository is working... -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1747597 Title: Number of processes exploded after upgrade to 4.13.0-32-generic Status in linux package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: After an update from 4.10.0-40-generic to 4.13.0-32-generic (ubuntu 16.04 + hwe kernel), the number of process when doing IO on my machine has exploded.
