== Ubuntu patches have NOT been applied ==
The Ubuntu patches have not been applied. The linux-image-extra does not exist here.

== Single Flavor ==
I have created a new flavor named 'lz4'. This is the only flavor that exists here. Neither 'generic' nor 'lowlatency'.

Add the Repo and Install the meta-package

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nick-athens30/xenial

If you have another version of Ubuntu than Xenial and you want to install this kernel, you can try to add the PPA manually and Install:

$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys F56AC5FABE7E0CA1
