The "Development Stream" pages will be updated occasionally with descriptions of features already integrated into upstream kernel and also patches with descriptions for functionality soon to be submitted for upstream integration.
The contributions from the Linux on z Systems development team to Linux on z Systems distribution releases (mostly retrofits from the "Development Stream") will be documented on these "Distribution Hints" pages shortly after the distribution release are generally available. Besides documenting bugfixes, the focus for these hints will be on mapping the new features in the distributions against the "Development Stream" documentation.
Please refer to Distribution hints for z13 for detailed information about prerequisites and support for z13 in current Linux on System z distributions.
Please refer to IBM Linux on z Systems - Tested Platforms to see the IBM support for your distribution.
The following Linux Kernel updates have been released to address the issue:Circumvention:
To circumvent this issue, load the z90crypt module, specifying a domain parameter in the range 0 - 15. There are two possible scenarios:
If there are multiple cryptographic adapters defined, chose one of the domains available on all adapters, because the z90crypt device driver can only make use of one domain.
Note: When using cryptographic adapters on an LPAR, or when using dedicated cryptographic adapters on z/VM, the domain can also be made persistent. To make the domain persistent, create a file, for example /etc/modprobe.d/z90crypt.conf with the following content:
options z90crypt domain=<domain>
This triggers the kernel module to use the specified domain when using 'modprobe z90crypt'.
The steps above describe a temporary workaround. To obtain the kernel fix, contact your service provider.
