    Idk, but I'm fine with it as long as their hadron collider doesn't explode. Only goes to show they're just people and they can have shitty logistics.

    Wait.

    CERN developed the FMC subsystem for the Linux kernel with other authors.

    "The authors" now claim that it's turd and removed it from their development tree, and have requested upstream to follow though with its removal in 5.2.

    Phoronix: There's A Kernel Subsystem Being Dropped In Linux 5.3 As Easier To Start Over Than Fix

    The GPIO updates for the newly-opened Linux 5.3 kernel merge window is dropping the FMC subsystem as they deem it easier to re-start from scratch writing that code than to try to repair it, or "start over using the proper kernel subsystems than try to polish the rust shiny." Funny enough, this code is being used by the CERN's well known Large Hadron Collider...
