Bug Description

GCE's Ubuntu 15.10 images lack the pvpanic driver. The driver is useful for detecting guest panics, and we would like to see it added to the Ubuntu 15.10 virtual kernel.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. From a terminal window please run:

apport-collect 1537923

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.
