    Phoronix: Linux 4.19.7 Released With Important PCI Express Fix, New & Improved STIBP

    Greg Kroah-Hartman has released Linux 4.19.7 today as another rather eventful point release in the Linux 4.19 stable series. He's also updated the older LTS branches too should you be depending upon them...

      It looks like the blk-mq corruption fix actually is in it.

          First I thought that kernel 4.19 was a good one to stay with. But I realized that it messed up with my docker containers as well as some of the proprietary illumina software that was installed way back. Reverting back to 4.14 LTS fixed all the issues. I am using all these on Manjaro stable.

          Docker problem seems to arise from the overlayfs but those suggested fixed did not help me at all.

            Patch releases for 4.19 are piling up fast.

              Regarding docker, for me it worked to delete (well, move away) the /var/lib/docker dir. Restart docker after that and pull. I found this to be the prudent approach when updating kernels and docker wouldn't start afterwards.

                Thanks for the suggestion. I will note that. I need to see the reason for the illumina software segfaulting now. (They clearly do not segfault in 4.14 but they segfault in 4.19)

                  No.

                  When was the last time you had your eyesight checked? ;-)

                    Don't blame the kernel for your own inability to maintain your system. Docker working great here on 4.19.7, it's a longterm stable kernel.
