Bug Description


To support switchdev as an inbox feature of Ubuntu Core, we would need the Ubuntu kernel to build with switchdev support, by setting NET_SWITCHDEV.

Can we turn this on for Yakkety? We have hardware that Luke Williams can use to verify working kernels.

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

apport-collect 1628241

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.
