Hi all, 

This is my first stable release report. It is not at all perfect but I
would like some feedback on how to do this properly, so that I can
improve from the next report on.

I used my generic kernel as reference for dmesg.(4.4.0-145-generic)
I have built the stable kernel with the default .config file rather than
using my machines config file. 

This is my machine details:
5.1.0-rc3 #1 SMP Sat Apr 13 18:41:40 IST 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Currently running the latest stable release.

Dmesg:

There were no KERN_ALERT, KERN_EMERG level messages for generic and stable
kernels. 
KERN_ERR level:
(for stable release)

I ran kselftests as root but I am unsure on how to effectively
communicate the results of kselftests? I also think that some of the
dmesgs might be specific to my machine and may not be generic.

I would love some feedback on this report. 

Is it ok if I prefix my stable release reports with a number to keep
track of how  many reports I have submitted? 
eg:- [2] Stable release report will be my 2nd stable release report. 

Thank you,
Bharath Vedartham
