I realize on Canonical's site, it says that Livepatch removes the need for rebooting in the instance of critical kernel patches. Is this the only instance in which Livepatch would remove the need for a reboot? Is there a way we can identify in the software updates prompt what would otherwise require a reboot but for systems that are running Livepatch, the need to reboot no longer exists? I ask this question because I still get prompted to reboot 'often enough' (perhaps once a week or so) with the various LTS flavors of Ubuntu even with Livepatch enabled.
