    In that interview she said that she is 'lurking' on Reddit (skip to 7:50):

    Yup, knowing what Lisa was up to when Brian was on Reddit is the important thing, good questions.

    And are you a moron? Wait, don't answer that; it's a redundant question.

    Well, she's been answering questions on r/amd herself

    If Bill Gates and Barack Obama can be on reddit, so can Lisa Su.

    I think the general Linux community still acknowledges that AMD support for Linux is "behind" relative to the work that is done by Intel.

    The fact that AMD cut back so deeply a number of years ago is not "unreported news". As anyone knows that has held a budget-responsible role in a business should know, it takes more M-O-N-E-Y to hire new talent than it does to retain new talent. Good Linux programming talent, especially those programmers that are skilled in writing "down next to the hardware" device drivers, can be really difficult.

    Why should AMD hire these people and not the distributions or even independent developers? Access ... access to the internal bits of info that lawyers don't want released to the public; a despicable idea to some in these forums but it's true.

    Sure, a specification can be released, but that's only part of the solution. Knowing how that specification was/is implemented in the hardware ('internal bits of info') can help a lot in developing good reliable code (and hardware) to work with that hardware. Just ask those folks that work for Intel (or AMD) that contribute Linux code to the kernel; it's sometimes easier to ask questions when you all work for the same company than it is when you are an outsider to that company.

    It all comes down to internal resources and internal funding; M-O-N-E-Y.

    "No bucks, no Buck Rogers." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7rGA0Zv8R4

    Perhaps in the near future we will see AMD spend some of the M-O-N-E-Y that it made on these new Zen family architecture CPUs on internal development resources for Linux driver development.

    I don't know if it's the patches or if I'm doing something wrong. I'm not even sure if I'm supposed to use 5.5 or whatever is in the 5.6 git at the moment. In any case it's over my head to debug it, I'm just reporting my results. If someone wants to point me in the right direction I'll be happy to try it again though. I have an R7 3700x.
    Did you apply the patches in the right order? It compiled without any issues for me by just adding the patches and updating Manjaro's linux55 PKGBUILD file to apply them.
