    Still no zstd support for kernel or initrd. Sigh.

      Is < 100 seconds on a $200 processor really not enough for you? A Ryzen 3600 works just fine for me and is only 65W. https://openbenchmarking.org/showdow...d-linux-kernel

      Even my now somewhat aging i7-4790 compiles my real-world kernel (what I use on a desktop/development system every day) from a clean start in eight minutes and that's on a lightly loaded machine running a standard desktop environment. Who doesn't have eight minutes to spare?

        Ever heard of Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress?

          Of course! I have been to the Carousel of Progress. My point isn't that technology shouldn't advance, and won't, but that we can be satisfied with what is available now while still looking forward to the future.

            Okay, other than the ext4 problem fixed by the patch in Comment #3 the only other issue I've had with 5.8-rc1 is the rtl8812au dkms driver for my Edimax AC-1200 adapter. I created a patch that appears to fix it and posted it at https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au/issues/658 for the developers.

              Technology must advance. We can't stop progress.

                Yeah that would be very nice to have.
