LKFT tests the following branches. The canonical source for Linux kernel branch information is and

Longterm and Stable

The following longterm stable (LTS) branches are tested:

  • 4.4
  • 4.9
  • 4.14

In addition to LTS branches, the latest stable branch is also tested.

  • 4.16


The following branches from hikey-linaro tree are tested:

  • android-hikey-linaro-4.4
  • android-hikey-linaro-4.9
  • android-hikey-linaro-4.14


Although maintaining good continuous integration on LTS branches is most important, mainline is important to track in order to catch issues before they hit a stable branch.


Likewise, linux-next is run daily in order to catch issues as soon as possible.
