    Phoronix: You May Want To Think Twice About Trying Linux 4.7 Git Right Now

    Since yesterday all 12+ of my systems running daily mainline Linux kernel benchmarks have failed to boot when using Linux 4.7 Git...

    No issues here, but I am mounting based on label not UUID.

      Mines is booting, but I'm having issues with the ath10k driver and it's causing quite a few freezes, I'll need to bisect it sometime

        13,37 € bounty for bisecting this problem to the exact git pull.

          And no problem with yesterday's (late) git on an AMD FX-9590 over here. I even tested compute shaders with it and I played Alien Isolation during the evening without any problem on a R9 280X.

            I use Ubuntu as my distribution. The Ubuntu mainline kernel 4.7-rc1 (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...7-rc1-yakkety/) does not boot on my Ubuntu 16.04 Server. However, if I compile the kernel myself using the Ubuntu mainline kernel 4.6 (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa.../v4.6-yakkety/) kernel configuration, and accepting all defaults, then the resulting kernel 4.7-rc1 boots, and seems to run, fine.

              same problem on ubuntu 16.04 64bit.
              i've downloaded linux 4.7 rc1 from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ but on startup i receive same yours errors.
              how to solve the problem?

              EDIT: i've compiled manually the kernel 4.7, and now it works (then is only a problem of prebuild .deb packages), i've also enablet CIK for amdgpu and schedutil governor

                I found the offending commit:
                ath10k: combine txrx and replenish task 5c86d97bcc1d42ce7f75685a61be4dad34ee8183

                Reverting it allows me to use 4.7-rc1 here's the bug report https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119151

                  Thank you, it worked also for me!
