This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed- bionic' to 'verification-done-bionic'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-failed- bionic'.
If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed.

Summary: kernel: report new CPU capabilities Description: Add hardware capability bits and features tags to /proc/cpuinfo for 4 new CPU features: the "Vector-Enhancements Facility 2", the "Vector-Packed-Decimal-Enhancement Facility", the "Enhanced-Sort Facility" and the "Deflate-Conversion Facility" To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-z-systems/+bug/1836857/+subscriptions -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~kernel-packages Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~kernel-packages More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
