More material is still heading into the Linux 4.5 kernel next week, but in terms of what's been merged or at least volleyed out onto the kernel mailing list this week includes:
- Cgroup v2 is now official within the kernel.
- Next-gen media controller support.
- Numerous ACPI and power management updates.
- More Microsoft Hyper-V work in KVM.
- HID driver updates that include Logitech G920 racing wheel support, better Wacom device support, and more.
- Faster PS/2 mouse detection time.
- A number of sound/ALSA improvements.
- Numerous PowerPC architecture changes.
- Various updates to the MD subsystem and this was the last pull request issued by outgoing MD maintainer Neil Brown.
- New F2FS features for this Flash-Friendly File-System.
- The usual churn within the kernel's staging area.
- Perf support for Intel's Knights Landing Xeon Phi.
- New AMD power monitoring support via the hwmon subsystem.
Again, stay tuned for more news this coming week about Linux 4.5! There's still the DRM graphics pull to be submitted, EXT4 and Btrfs pull requests to be mailed out, more ARM changes, and other subsystems that haven't yet sent over their new code to Linus Torvalds.
Of course, in time there will be plenty of Linux 4.5 kernel benchmarks on Phoronix to complement our daily automated kernel Git benchmarks done on Ubuntu and Fedora over at LinuxBenchmarking.com.
