Motivation for this change

Potentially security critical PR in the context of BleedingTooth. 5.8.16 releases a lot of bluetooth updates.

Things done

Ran nix-build nixos/tests/kernel-latest.nix with kernelPackages set to linuxPackages_5_8.

  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests):
$ cd nixos/tests
$ sed -e s/linuxPackages_latest/linuxPackages_5_8/ kernel-latest.nix > foo.nix 
$ nix-build foo.nix
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.
