Description Darko Luketic 2017-11-26 08:31:33 UTC
cgroup_bpf patch is applied towards kernel 4.10 and up

kernel 4.9 doesn't have this functionality, therefore >=systemd-235 should require kernel >=4.10

or backport the cgroup_bpf patch to lts kernels

cgroup bpf support is not a requirement; it's just a warning.

Lennart has already fixed the log spam issue on master.
