I was assigned 24.5 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 0.5 hours from October. I worked 21.25 hours this month, so will carry over 3.75 hours to December.
I released Linux 3.16.76, rebased the Debian package onto that, and sent out a request for testing.
I backported the mitigation for TSX Asynchronous Abort (CVE-2019-11135) and reporting of iTLB multihit (CVE-2018-12207) to 3.16 (this work started in October). I applied these and a GPU security fix, uploaded the Debian package and issued DLA-1989-1.
I backported the latest security update for Linux 4.9 from stretch to jessie and issued DLA-1990-1 for that.
I prepared and, after, review, released Linux 3.16.77 and 3.16.78. I rebased the Debian package onto 3.16.78 and sent out a request for testing.
