Jail broke a BMC today and found a truly vintage Linux kernel.

@qrs I think I still have an AP with a 2.4 somewhere :D

@qrs wait... 2.6.28 was tagged in December 2008, and this vendor did a new build of that source almost a full decade later? I mean I don't know when the .9 stable release happened but...

@jamey The latest BMC version for this mainboard was built April 2019 and is still 2.6.28.9. That's 10 years 1 month after the release. lwn.net/Articles/325024/
