        DG2 should finally be somewhat stable, with working hwdec and enc

          Let's hope that the GFX11 memory leak has been resolved. I'm not sure if it's more the kernel itself to blame or Mesa, but ultimately it's leaking kernel memory over time. Will compile and test. It leaks about 10 gigabytes per hour when playing Dying Light 2, but it also leaks about 150 MiB/hr even if I'm not at my computer.

            Which bug report tracks it?

              Mesa version? LLVM, etc?

                  LLVM15, Mesa 23.0.0-rc4

                  Something has changed with kernel 6.2.0-rc8. I compiled and rebooted last night and memory usage stayed flat all night and through today. I played Dying Light 2 for about 30 minutes after work and kernel memory rose a bit but stayed flat the entire time the game was running. It would normally have leaked about 5 GiB during that time. I had been building each new RC as it became available since I received this card. This was the first one that seemed to touch on my specific issue.

                  Quick update from two weeks later:

                  The memory leak was indeed fixed with 6.2.0-rc8. I never again saw the kernel memory leak while playing games once I started using that kernel.
