playbook: debian9: kernel v↑ (4.9.185-1 -> 4.9.189-3)
The kernel in Debian9 was updated by upstream and new updates, among regular bugfixes contain fixes for security issues:
The kernel was also included into just oldstable (compared to oldstable-proposed-updates). I'm not dropping oldstable-proposed-updates repository for now, since maybe we might need it once again in the future.
The changes were merged into master. The source branch has been removed.
I was looking where to update the kernel that we use for Debian 10 (since 4.19.67 contains my patch whereas 4.19.37 does not). As I did not found upgrading the kernel on Debian 10 is still an open issue.
Though along the way I noticed we should eventually also upgrade the kernel that we use for Debian 9. The patch does that but is completely untested and done blind. Please forgive me if I made a silly mistake somewhere.
Seems fine the change.
Officially the Debian 10 is not used officially yet, so we don't have kernel upgrade for Debian 10. It will be added once the test infrastructure be upgraded to debian 10, first, we need to ensure that all (or most) tests pass on Debian 10.
