Hi Nikolaus,

I finally got around to testing that 4.17.3+ build of yours and these
are the things I noticed:

modules.tgz has many files outside of /lib/modules
linux-image_*.deb has many files outside of /lib/modules and /boot
linux-image_*.deb does not contain the uImage

With the previous stable 4.16 as fetched by makesd I had occasional
unexpected shutdown after leaving the phone lying around idle while
attached to the charger. And every time the battery was empty afterwards :(
I haven't seen this on 4.17 yet after several hours so I guess that is a
good sign!

WiFi sometimes fails to authenticate (open network) and requires one
ifdown-ifup cycle:
[  411.405700] wlan0: authenticate with <censored>
[  411.418884] wlan0: send auth to <censored> (try 1/3)
[  411.555633] wlan0: send auth to <censored> (try 2/3)
[  411.705718] wlan0: send auth to <censored> (try 3/3)
[  411.815734] wlan0: authentication with <censored> timed out
then on next ifup after ifdown:
[  488.789276] wlan0: authenticate with <censored>
[  488.801879] wlan0: send auth to <censored> (try 1/3)
[  488.830963] wlan0: authenticated
[  488.835693] wlan0: associate with <censored> (try 1/3)
[  488.846221] wlan0: RX AssocResp from <censored> (capab=0x421 status=0
[  488.872192] wlcore: Association completed.
[  488.881774] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready
[  488.889678] wlan0: associated
I also have seen this with 4.16 I believe.

I don't understand the output of the charger script:
Which battery is which, and why do they all have different charge levels?

TWL4030 Main Battery
volt: 3777mV
current: 918mA
fuel level: ca. 50%
temp: 27°C
type: 1mV <-- Is this a type? Really?

Battery /sys/class/power_supply/bq27000-battery
present: 1
technology: Li-ion
capacity: 10%
status: Charging

Battery /sys/class/power_supply/gta04-battery
technology: Li-ion
capacity: 43%
status: Charging

And finally a little note on makesd running on stretch:
I noticed that /root is assigned the group dialout, which breaks ssh
Also maybe not use http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian but rather
http://httpredir.debian.org/debian ?
Or maybe just ftp.debian.org - is that url load-balanced by dns?
