after, after Linux 6.1-rc2 was “unusually large” And the Linux 6.1-rc3 continued to be larger than averageLinux 6.1-rc4 is out and fortunately it’s medium in size. Things have calmed down now in the middle of the Linux kernel release candidate stage.
Linus Torvalds commented on today 6.1-rc4 إعلان ad:
So as hoped (and expected), things seem to be calming down, and RC4 is a pretty normal size for this point in the process.
diffstat looks fairly normal too – often nice and flat (small changes spread out), with a spike in refresh FW for drm/amdkfd. The other thing that stands out is some stricter xfs recalculation checks and related fixes (.and some new clx tests. But even those aren’t huge, they just show up in the stats.
A vignette doesn’t look intimidating either. It’s all the usual stuff – drivers, file systems, architecture updates, some networking, random little things elsewhere.
So hey, please jump right in, the water is good. But more testing is always appreciated,
Among the fixes that will be fixed in Linux 6.1-rc4 include a temporary fix for RDNA3/GFX11 to disable GFXOFF power saving during computational workloads, other AMD RDNA3 tweaks, various Btrfs fixes, several XFS fixes, and a variety of other fixes around huge. kernel code base.
