Bug Description


This is a scripted bug report about ADT failures while running bcmwl tests for linux-hwe-5.11/5.11.0-20.21~20.04.1 on focal. Whether this is caused by the dep8 tests of the tested source or the kernel has yet to be determined.

Testing failed on:
    amd64: https://autopkgtest.ubuntu.com/results/autopkgtest-focal/focal/amd64/b/bcmwl/20210611_210047_c4a48@/log.gz

[Test Plan]

sudo apt-get install bcmwl-dkms

[Where problems could occur]

Run time regressions could occur due to compatibility changes required for linux-hwe-5.11

[Other Info]

Please migrate this package update to -security as well in order not to break users when the default hwe kernel in Focal upgrades to 5.11.

Hello Kleber, or anyone else affected,

Accepted bcmwl into focal-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bcmwl/ in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, what testing has been performed on the package and change the tag from verification-needed-focal to verification-done-focal. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-focal. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

This bug was fixed in the package bcmwl -

bcmwl ( focal; urgency=medium

  * Backported from hirsute (LP: #1932159)
    - Add internal ioctl helper to avoid the need to use set_fs()/get_fs(),
      which have been removed in Linux 5.10.

The verification of the Stable Release Update for bcmwl has completed successfully and the package is now being released to -updates. Subsequently, the Ubuntu Stable Release Updates Team is being unsubscribed and will not receive messages about this bug report. In the event that you encounter a regression using the package from -updates please report a new bug using ubuntu-bug and tag the bug report regression-update so we can easily find any regressions.

Unfortunately, it seems that this update is not actually arriving on systems because apt considers package version from focal-updates a downgrade compared to version, see LP: #1940722. Not sure why that is, maybe the version should be named differently?
