Objet: [PVE-User] 4.15 based test kernel for PVE 5.x available

a pve-kernel-4.15 meta package depending on a preview build based on 
Ubuntu Bionic's 4.15 kernel is available on pvetest. it is provided as 
opt-in package in order to catch potential regressions and hardware 
incompatibilities early on, and allow testing on a wide range of systems 
before the default kernel series gets switched over to 4.15 and support 
for our 4.13 based kernel is phased out at some point in the future. 

in order to try it out on your test systems, configure the pvetest 
repository and run 

apt update 
apt install pve-kernel-4.15 

the pve-kernel-4.15 meta package will keep the preview kernel updated, 
just like the pve-kernel-4.13 meta package (recently pulled out of the 
proxmox-ve package) does for the stable 4.13 based kernel. 

also on pvetest, you will find a pve-headers-4.15 header meta package in 
case you need them for third-party module building, a linux-tools-4.15 
package with compatible perf, as well as an updated pve-firmware package 
with the latest blobs. 

notable changes besides the major kernel update include the removal of 
out-of-tree Intel NIC modules, which are not (yet) compatible with 4.15 
kernels. this removal be re-evaluated at some later point before the 
final switch to 4.15 as new stable kernel in PVE 5. 

there are no plans to support both 4.13 and 4.15 in the long term - once 
the testing phase of 4.15 is over 4.15 will become the new default 
kernel and 4.13 will receive no updates anymore. 

happy testing and looking forward to feedback!
