    Phoronix: Linux 4.7-rc1 Kernel Released

    The first test release of Linux 4.7 is now available. This new kernel version comes with plenty of new features and functionality...

    Looks like they have solved the random lockup system with intel graphics.
    Either that or the problematic patch has not made it to 4.7-rc1. But I think everything that is in Linus git master ends up in the next rc, right? And that was broken for me a couple of days ago.

    Edit: X gamma control doesn't work. Not sure if it is because of the kernel or because xorg git. Does it work for everyone else?

    xgamma -gamma 0.5

      phoronix looks like they really rely on you this time, hope there is enough sponsoring though.

          Any further work in 4.7 on the Cgroups cleanup? (Control Groups v2)

            After switch to this kernel and kernel-firmware 1.158, I see a huge perf drop in Shadow of Mordor with AMDGPU driver for my Tonga based GPU. Since kernel 4.6 I also see some "Invalid PCI ROM" error message at boot phase (before GDM start)

              maybe it is the intel p-state regression you are seeing:

                I have AMD CPU -> A10 7850K, so it isn't this issue, but thanks.
