      stable: Allow merging of backports for serious user-visible performance issues · eb3979f6
      Mel Gorman authored
      Distribution kernel maintainers routinely backport fixes for users that
      were deemed important but not "something critical" as defined by the
      rules. To users of these kernels they are very serious and failing to fix
      them reduces the value of -stable.
      
      The problem is that the patches fixing these issues are often subtle and
      prone to regressions in other ways and need greater care and attention.
      To combat this, these "serious" backports should have a higher barrier
      to entry.
      
      This patch relaxes the rules to allow a distribution maintainer to merge
      to -stable a backported patch or small series that fixes a "serious"
      user-visible performance issue. They should include additional information on
      the user-visible bug affected and a link to the bugzilla entry if available.
      The same rules about the patch being already in mainline still apply.
