    I was hoping this would fix a shutdown freeze bug I've been hitting lately. But there's nothing listed.

      and iptables connlimit is still broken as it was form 4.19.0
      "Note: patches are already part of v5.0-rc1 kernel"

      who the fuck cares about 5.x when 4.18.20 was the last useable kernel when the problem was finally got isolated in december and patches exists since christmas

              Unfortunately it still doesn't work with the R9 390. There is some improvement in that DC can finally be enabled, but since DPM still can't it has no real world effect. The worst part is no one seems to care, as the bug reports filed about it are immediately relegated to limbo. In fact in the 3 years since I bought my expensive R9 390 the incompetence of AMD has seen to it that I've only actually been able to fully use it, off and on, for about six months.

                I have a hard time reading the kernel changelogs in the format they're given, so I use this one-liner:

                Code:
                wget -q -O - https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/ChangeLog-4.20.1 | grep -A2 'Date:' | grep -v 'Date:\|^$\|^--' | sort | less

                  I too try new kernels from time to time and revert back to 4.18.20 which is the last acceptable kernel. It's sad that they made the disaster that is 4.19 a LTS kernel.

                    4.19.5 and 4.20.2 are still fucked up - amazing when you look at "Patches for 4.20 has been posted" message from 2018-12-28, so the last useable upstream release for firewall devices was in november 2018
