Thank you very much for spending the effort to reply to me - it’s very much appreciated.
I know I could build the kernel myself. But the problem is the deployment: I have a fleet of devices to upgrade and we do this in an automated fashion using Ansible. Ansible basically runs a apt update && apt dist-upgrade. I would have to change the whole deployment logic in our Ansible playbook just for a one-time hotfix.
I’m only referring to the complete image because anybody who currently buys a VIM3 and uses OOWOW to flash an image will try the latest, broken Fenix 1.4 / Linux 6.1.0 image. From my point of view, this alone should justify a hotfix.
