    Phoronix: Linux 4.4-rc6: The Kernel Remains Quiet Around The Holidays

    Linus Torvalds has just announced the release of Linux 4.4-rc6...

    I've tried the 4.4 rcs and intel graphics are very broken.. again. All bugs already known, of course:

    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist...0%3A0x85fffff8
    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist...flip_work_func

    It's fun because when it happens while using PRIME with a radeon GPU, this also brings down the radeon driver (I think):
    Code:
    BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffff800180a56ea8
    IP: [<ffffffffa02fe7fe>] radeon_sync_fence+0xe/0x70 [radeon]
    This should really be fixed soon... There's usually a release after rc6 or rc7, right?

      The Intel driver is *always* broken during RCs.
      ## VGA ##
      AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
      Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)
