Here is the definitive list of what taints the kernel. This is from the 4.14 documentation but is also valid for 4.15 kernels. https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/v4.14/admin-guide/tainted-kernels.html The numbers in the list correspond to the bit positions in the value supplied by "cat /proc/sys/kernel/tainted" Why you don't get "tainted" messages in your dmesg output or journal? Don't know....and I'd not be interested in chasing it down. I've a small program that converts the value from proc-tainted into real info if you need it. -- A motto of mine is: When in doubt, try it out
