** Description changed:

  == SRU Justification ==
  VIMC is a virtual media controller that can emulate a real media device.
  This is useful for automated tests, and development of multimedia frameworks.
  
  == Fix ==
  Enable VIMC as a module in B/D/E kernel configs.
  
  == Test ==
  Test kernels could be found here:
  https://people.canonical.com/~phlin/kernel/lp-1831482-cfg-vimc/
  
  User has reported that the Eoan kernel works as expected.
  I have also smoke tested the B/D kernel to make sure the VIMC modules
  can be loaded properly.
  
  == Regression Potential ==
- Low, this patchset just enable the VIMC module support.
+ Low, this patchset enables the VIMC module support, we might see some
+ bug reports against this module in the future. However the acutal impact
+ for a non-vimc user should be minimum.
+ 
+ There is a null pointer deference issue was found while inserting the
+ vimc module on some system (lp:1840028), it will be handled in that bug.
  
  
  == Original Bug report ==
  The Multimedia VIMC module provides a test interface for the linux-media 
media controller framework.
  
  This is useful for automated tests, and development of multimedia frameworks.
  Other components similar to this such as VIVID (CONFIG_VIDEO_VIVID=m) are 
enabled, but VIMC is missing from the linux-modules packages:
  
  $ grep VIMC /boot/config-*
  /boot/config-4.15.0-32-generic:# CONFIG_VIDEO_VIMC is not set
  /boot/config-4.17.9-041709-generic:# CONFIG_VIDEO_VIMC is not set
  /boot/config-4.18.4-041804-generic:# CONFIG_VIDEO_VIMC is not set
  /boot/config-4.18.7-041807-generic:# CONFIG_VIDEO_VIMC is not set
  /boot/config-5.0.0-13-generic:# CONFIG_VIDEO_VIMC is not set
  /boot/config-5.0.0-15-generic:# CONFIG_VIDEO_VIMC is not set
  
  Could this be enabled in future releases as a module please?
  
  I'm running Ubuntu 19.04, with Ubuntu 5.0.0-13.14-generic 5.0.6, however
  I believe this issue affects all current Ubuntu kernel releases.
