Right ... with kernel-tools and perf I'd rather have something built against
the F26 userspace ... but I have run the rawhidenodebug kernels in the past
for testing ... it's just nicer and more representative for testing what
will end up in the F26 repos to have the kernel built against F26 in the
I've suggested in the past that we ship the userspace tools in a
completely separate package, leaving ONLY kernel bits in the kernel
SRPM and subpackages. Partly for this reason, and also because there
is no NEED to build e.g. perf daily. I'm willing to put my money
where my mouth is and do the maintenance on the userspace side if
people want to pursue this.
