In this paper, we perform a fresh look at how the Linux kernel variability model coevolves with other artifacts, namely Makefiles and C source code. This work has been published online at the Empirical Software Engineering Journal (ESE, Springer), and it extends our previous article published in SPLC'13.

Our paper describes a longitudinal case study of feature scattering in the Linux kernel. In the hope of contributing towards a general scattering theory, we quantitatively and qualitatively
analyze almost eight years of Linux kernel development history, focusing on scattering of device-driver features.
