    Phoronix: Linux 5.12-rc5 Released - It's Bigger Than Average

    Today's release of Linux 5.12-rc5 is "bigger than average" for this stage of kernel development and if that keeps up is likely to result in an extra week's worth of testing / an -rc8 release ahead of Linux 5.12 final, but it's too early to call at this stage...

            I'm really looking forward to this landing in my distro. Being able to switch between voluntary and full preemption at will will be extremely useful.

                I doubt he's cutoff. There were some nice rants if this is what you mean.

                  Hahah, no think about it... she's the one that's probably seen many, so she'd know what'd be considered average. If he knew, he'd be gay. (Not that there's anything wrong with that).

                    That's the spirit!
                    I mean seriously, why would anyone on a desktop system use anything other than full-preemption? (»uname -a« should show "PREEMPT")

                    That being said, first make sure that your distro of choice really does allow you to switch the preemption model without introducing any significant overhead by making sure the following option in your kernel config is actually enabled:
                    Code:
                    zcat /proc/config.gz | grep HAVE_STATIC_CALL_INLINE
                    Else start buggering them already!

                    For anyone on openSUSE Tumbleweed (like me): Y'all are already covered!
