** 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.
