    and some regressions as well (as stated in amd open source driver benchmarks)

      Michael, has that high profile kernel crash bug been bisected and patched yet?

            Not in the kernel, afaik.

              Bisecting is next to impossible, because there isn't any regression test.
              From what I understand, most common denominator was racing between watchdog and something (plus there was unrelated Xen regression that has been fixed).

              To be on safe side, you can disable watchdog by adding nmi_watchdog=0 to your parameter list (people with servers probably don't wanna do that, but there is little use of watchdog on workstations).

                What about that file-system performance regression?

                "Diseased newt" indeed...

                    AFAIK, nmi_watchdog is disabled in 32bit kernels but i might be wrong , can anyone confirm ?
