    Phoronix: Linux 3.11 Kernel Released

    For those not paying attention, Linus Torvalds has done a Labor Day release of the Linux 3.11 kernel...

    With 3.11, it seems that the nice level of processes is largely ignored, and turning off /proc/sys/kernel/sched_autogroup_enabled no longer fixes it.

    So rather than [email protected] running in the background, it still has nice 19, but now takes half the CPU while other things only get the other half of the CPU time.
    Wow, that sucks!

    If nice levels aren't respected, then its basically useless.

    No more ethnocentric than calling it Labour Day, though.

    And since both Linus Torvalds and Phoronix are based out of the US, that seems like the obvious holiday they would be referring to. The fact that Canada picked the same date for their holiday is somewhat besides the point.

    the only thing that interests me in this release is the addition of driver support for the Intel's and Atheros' 80211ac hardware.

    Ralink / Mediatek's 80211ac driver source is released out-of-tree on their official website, so no biggie.

    That just leaves Realtek's RTL8812AU (usb) and RTL8812AE (mpcie) still lacking Linux drivers.
