    It does work for me with refind, i haven't tried grub2 yet. Just when i try to boot it directly, i.e. without refind, gummiboot or grub2, it doesn't work. 3.5 works though.

    There are others which have problems too: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=146386

    xen

    I can't even boot the kernel .. kernel panic in xennet_poll.

    i was trying to use it because i think they've added tcp small queues now?

    There were people in the Arch forums that reported the same issue. You are not alone.

    Atoms?

    What about the Intel Atoms N-series? Will this kernel finally works with them?

    Runs fine so far, no obvious big bugs. Radeon HD 6550M seems to be a bit warmer on low/mod power profile but that could just be the room temperature...
    The freeware Trackmania seems to run a little bit slower but not really much.

    But the most interesting question: Is everything needed for prime/dmabuf (gpu offloading and output slaves) in 3.6?

    "The kernel developers have also added a "suspend to both" feature that makes hybrid standby possible. This feature allows memory contents to be buffered in RAM and on a system's storage device while the system is sleeping. Normally, the computer will then use the data in memory and resume just like it normally would from Suspend to RAM; in case of a power cut, however, the system will retrieve the previous RAM contents from the drive as it would do when resuming from Suspend to Disk. This allows users to always find their working environment as it was before the system went to sleep – even if, for instance, the notebook battery had lost all of its power in the interim."

    That's gonna change my life.
    Was already done in userspace for years, but good to have it in kernel now.

    This is great news. Waiting for the battery to die before trying to save memory to the hard drive always seemed like a less-than-optimal design decision
