    Phoronix: Linux 3.11-rc3 Kernel Brings In Many More Patches

    The third release candidate is out for the Linux 3.11 kernel and it incorporates many more patches -- too many more than Linus Torvalds would prefer at this time...

    "It's summer. It's nice outside. Take the kids to the pool or something."
    If I was a kernel hacker, I would tell Linus that summer is way too hot and no sane person has kids.*

    *If someone was sane when they had kids, they're certainly not after a few years of having them.

      My grandmother says that: "Your kid and your dog will behave as you teach them".

      BTW is the radeon DPM expected to be enabled by default on a subsequent rc or with the next kernel?

        Shoutout

        This release properly fixes the Backlight on the Dell XPS13z (Sandy Bridge and Ivy bridge) as well as an Acer Aspire model that all had non-functioning backlights.

        From the release announcement:

        Kamal Mostafa (1):
        drm/i915: quirk no PCH_PWM_ENABLE for Dell XPS13 backlight
        Big thanks to Kamal for supplying the fix, as well as being open to start working on this again when Daniel and I started poking him about it lol

          Working absolutely fantastic. I even gained 3MB/s in disk transfer speeds with -rc3, weird.

            It would be logical if it was only in the next kernel. They need people to test it, and there are people who are willing to test features that are under a kernel switch, but are not willing to compile/download the -rc versions of the kernel.

              Still hard lockup when disabling the HD 7970M with vgaswitcheroo, even without dpm enabled.

              How much longer must I use a stable kernel?!
