      Yes, I don't recall seeing it getting enabled during the 5.1 merge window.

        It would be nice to see bcachefs added to a future kernel release, maybe 5.2, since it shows promise of providing XFS performance with ZFS features. Given how great it is, its interesting how little attention it is given. Perhaps it needs funding from Google or IBM since Linux really needs a decent, fast advanced filesystem.

          The hyperlink to Linus's post is pointing to this article, rather than the post itself.

              Awesome if by fixed you mean removing FreeSync as an option. Happens with Ubuntu mainline 5.1_rc3 as well as the drm-tip version.

              Code:
              DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --prop
              Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 16384 x 16384
              DisplayPort-0 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 519mm x 293mm

                Last time I looked at it it was missing more or less the whole feature set of a next gen filesystem. Did it change? Like for example does it checksum and snapshot?
