The rebootless patching support in Linux 4.0 is the descendant of two existing proposals, kpatch (from RedHat) and kGraft (from SUSE). 1 These two descend from earlier research, by Jeff Arnold and Frans Kaashoek, on a solution called Ksplice, which was bought by Oracle in 2011.
If you think that Linux is still the "rebel code”—the antiestablishment, software-just-wants-to-be-free operating system developed by independent programmers working on their own time — then it's time to think again.
The Linux kernel is the lowest level of software running on a Linux system, charged with managing the hardware, running user programs, and maintaining security and integrity of the whole set up. What many people don’t realize is that development is now mainly carried out by a small group of paid developers.
The live kernel patching support was one of the big additions to what became Linux 4.0, but with Linux 4.1 there aren't many improvements to show for the past cycle.
Jiri Kosina of SUSE is maintaining the kernel's livepatching code and explained in the 4.1 pull request, "These are mostly smaller things that got accumulated during the development cycle. The unified solution is still being worked on and is not mature enough for 4.1 yet."
