Thanks for the link Guilherme, guess that answers that question. Given March 4 is just round the corner, I am not sure there is much can be done at this point, but I will however just echo what Tom beat me to saying: As a software developer I fully understand and recognise the need to delay

No package containing the fix for 18.04 has been released yet, only 18.10. It is therefore expected that 18.04.X still displays the issue. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu.

Sorry Chris, Fix CommittedFixed, but not available until next release. made it sound like the upstream commit had been made and would fix the issue once 3.18 was merged in 15.04. With regards to the bisect I can say with certainty it is one of these: https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/10/6/515 Is there
