    Phoronix: Linux 2.6.31-rc1 Kernel Released

    Quite a lot has made its way into the Linux 2.6.31 kernel, particularly Radeon kernel mode-setting and the new TTM GPU memory manager, but now the merge window for this release cycle is closing. Linus Torvalds last night released Linux 2.6.31-rc1 as the first test release of this new code...

      Another thing that people have been waiting for as well with this kernel is the merging of the x-fi alsa driver into the tree. (Which BTW is in there)

        btrfs has dramatic performance improvements aswell. Not even Linus could handle them.

          I am the most interested in perfcounters. They can even catch hardware delays

            2.6.31-rc1 with kms enabled i915 driver panics here on my thinkpad x61s/gm965 with some errors in framebuffer driver. 2.6.30 works fine. Since it's late here no further investigation for today.

              Hm, could you maybe explain what performance (I take perf means that) counters mean/do? I tried to find some documentation, to no avail.

                    Same for me. I was gonna file a bug yesterday, but there is one already (I guess I'll add a comment with confirmation today):
