    Cheers

    edit: ah that one came in there, good to know - 32bit kernels again should be usable with radeon

    drm/radeon: Ignore RADEON_GEM_GTT_WC on 32-bit x86

      And what happened to the filesystem performance regressions?

        and still no problem with kernel 3.18, games are working very well, good system performance
        and low power consume.

        using ubuntu 14.04.1 with kernel 3.18.0 mesa 10.3 gcc 4.9

          Has anyone tried xawtv with 3.18?

          I'm concerned about this bug:

            How the odd regression affects system?

              It locks up.

              (Mind you, it seems to trigger for like one person in the world, so...)

                Make that two persons. I experience it as well ever since 3.16 (currently on 3.18 and it doesn't lock up as frequent anymore as on 3.16, but it still happens).

                  Using a syscall fuzzer, so making random nonsensical system-calls in fast succesion just in an attempt to expose bugs.

                    I get the lockup issue too, but it's pretty hard to trigger (usually takes gaming for 1hr+).
                    With 3.16 my uptime reached 28 days (longest i've gone with 3.16.x) before it triggered, trying 3.18 I triggered it in 2 days.
                    I'm wondering if it could be related to the drm/graphics stuff. I can't remember triggering it just using the desktop without flash videos in FF.
