What do you mean on merging the upstream kernel? by upstream I guess you mean mainline kernel right?
Can you explain give a little more detail on the work you are doing?
yes, I mean the mainline kernel and I am currently merging all commits missing in cm-14.1 from the mainline as that cm-kernel was on 3.10.85 only while mainline finished at 3.10.108.
After this is finished, the kernel should have all the security issues / bugs patched which were known when the kernel went EOL (November 2017). In addition so it's more easy if you want to backport features / patches which are released to newer kernels.
Btw.: a few moments ago I pushed the current state of the cm-14.1-updated kernel , updated until 3.10.108, too.
