          Did anyone manage to make amd p-states work as the CPU scheduler driver for Zen 2+?
          I've yet to launch 5.17, as I'm currently on a 40 days uptime that I'm not going to randomly stop.
          But when I do, I'd like to know if there's something to change to make use of the p-state driver instead of cpufreq. E.g. a kernel parameter to pass.

            It's annoying when it's impossible to error messages at boot because they get scrolled into oblivion too quickly.

            I have yet to include tmux into my initramfs and redirect console messages there, but interesting idea.

              This is not the re-enablement of scrolling in the native text-mode linux console (via shift-page up keys), is it?
