I've rebuilt quite a few Fedora kernels to enable the dell_rbu module for firmware updates on various Dell servers, workstations, and laptops that are running Fedora 21 and 22. Would it be possible to have it enabled in the normal kernel builds?
I found a bugzilla ticket referenced in the kernel config that points to some installation issues in Fedora 20. I can't tell if the bug was within dell_rbu or perhaps in systemd-udevd from the ticket. However, I've had success loading the module on various Dell equipment over the last 18 months or so.
If we enable it, could we ensure that it's not enabled by default? I wondered if a kernel subpackage would be helpful but that seems a bit like overkill.
In the f21 and f22 branch the ApplyPatch line is missing for:
I'm not sure if this was intentional or an oversight due to the "new"
way patches are applied in the f23 and master branches.
Just thought I'd give a heads up.
