    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.

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.
    Mesa version? LLVM, etc?

    Can't find it here: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/-/issues

    Which bug report tracks it?
