    Phoronix: Linux 3.5-rc7 Kernel: Not Cool, Guys. Not Cool.

    Linus Torvalds released the Linux 3.5-rc7 kernel on Saturday afternoon and he's not too happy about it...

    Did you file the bug?

    They do the same in politics, wait until the very last moment and then push it through parlament before the ministers have time to read it

    I rarely do kernel upgrades. If the new kernel fixes a problem that I had with my computer, I then upgrade. If it does not I do not upgrade the kernel. Following and upgrading after every kernel patch that comes out is just testing Murphy's law.

    I couldn't even build 3.5 yet (only a quick test and not really checked why), last I tried were 3.5-rc6. I have big hopes in it to be able to follow kernel releases again, my radeon card doesn't work properly since 3.4 release...

    Maybe later at home

    But better have some patches again but then a stable and good working kernel than to release too early and things being in a flaky state.

    I lol'ed at the discovery made in the talks of moving Microsofts hyper-v code out of staging, apparently they found the following constant:

    #define HV_LINUX_GUEST_ID_HI 0xB16B00B5

    I guess some guy at Microsoft hadn't been getting any for quite some time

    nothing like spicing things up when they get rather dull and humdrum
