Strange, is that an issue specific to Intel atom GPUs? I have not seen any
problems on a dual Intel (Ci7 4800) and AMD graphics machine. Anyway, it is
easy enough to just download and install the linux package directly, even if
[testing] is disabled.

BTW, to those updating, one notable (at least from my perspective) change with
3.18.y is the new module br_netfilter responsible for filtering traffic coming
through a bridge. This module is not loaded automatically, so no firewall is
enabled by default in bridges. Here is a dmesg snippet:
kernel: [   23.690774] bridge: automatic filtering via arp/ip/ip6tables has
been deprecated. Update your scripts to load br_netfilter if you need this.
