      idk how smart it is to use that one, I just checked out -b amd-staging-drm-next and that tree is based on 4.16.0-rc7. Sure, it's got the latest amdgpu code - but the rest of that kernel ain't exactly up-to-date. If you look back at the logs the mainline kernel hasn't been merged with that tree since 2018-03-25. k10temp can read the temperature on 2400G in 4.17rc3, small things like that would be missing in amd-staging-drm-next along with all the other kernel changes over the last month.

        It's a mess. The same happens with the Raspberry Pi Linux kernel, quite outdated compared to upstream. The default branch is based on 4.14.

        I hope new development methodologies, new tools and Git improvements become someday a countermeasure to this kind of forking hell...
