        I'm not sure why Michael keeps reporting on the changes pertaining to the support of the Ice Lake uArch. It hasn't yet been released and Intel hasn't even announced when they are going to release CPUs based on it. 10nm has been postponed/delayed/rescheduled so many times I'm afraid Intel will skip this node altogether and move straight to the 7nm node. Yeah, I know about the minute qualities of Cannon Lake CPUs which were only released to placate their investors and share holders.

            That's a negative, Ghostrider. The pattern is full.

              Nice!
              I hope Clear Linux will pick it up. FUSE improvements isn't something to sneeze at.

                  There is a tiny bit of Rust in there though. Just not actual code. So can perf demangle Rust symbol names (see .../tools/perf/util/demangle-rust.c).

                    Freesync is still disabled with Ubuntu's mainline 5.1 final. Hopefully they will switch it back on at some point.
