        The hangs you had might be this: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109234
        It was bisected to a bunch of dma patches.

          A buggy kernel config can causes that. I did copy my rc1 config to rc2 folder and it did not boot. Using my original 4.20 config made it to boot. The rc2 kernel works fine, tested with Tomb Raider 2016 and Superposition benchmark.

              it had to be this clown again right?

              Yeah dude. Me, Michael and everyone else that has this bug are idiots. The guy who ALREADY **CKING bisected it is also an idiot.

              Oh and nice uptime btw, my rc2 at least ran for a full day before crashing. I doubt your OS ever ran for a couple of days judging by the amount of bullshit and misinfo you spread everywhere.

                Nobody is interested to test a whole day waiting for a bug appear. When you do bug reports, you should trigger the bug faster and repeat it. There are many reasons for random crashes from hardware to the desktop. Your writings are against the net etiquette. Many people do sleep and their computers are not powered while sleeping.

                  Apparently it won't even compile, as it depends on some kernel symbols that were depracated over a decade ago.

                    It usually takes a bit of time for ZFS support the current mainline, though to me it feels that this is has improved in recent times. I went off ZFS for a lot of boxes though.
