    Phoronix: The New Features Of The Linux 4.11 Kernel

    If all goes according to plan, Linus Torvalds will have announced the first release candidate of the upcoming Linux 4.11 kernel before the day is through. The Linux 4.11-rc1 release also marks the end of the feature merge window for this kernel cycle. So with that said, here is a look at the new features of the Linux 4.11 kernel that I have been covering through closely watching the Git repository and mailing list over the past two weeks.

    I hope file managers quickly support statx(), I'd like to be able to sort files by creation time.

      Didn't Linux 4.11 also get support for new HDMI standards on AMD Radeon? Like support for 60 Hz at 4K resolutions?

        Don't believe so? Are you thinking of DAL/DC? If so that display code hasn't landed yet.

            PCIEASPM_POWER_SUPERSAVE looks clever, it's much appreciated.
            If there are any ideas for future tests, i'd love to see how much of a difference it makes to idle power consumption.

            Also wouldn't mind seeing how the cpufreq schedulers are comparing these days - is ondemand still edging ahead of schedutil for 'get the job done quickly then go idle'?

            Awww, Is the 'make wifi fast' patchset still in the pipeline? ath9k tweaks made it through to 4.10; nothing additional for 4.11?

              I'll have Ryzen cpufreq governor tests going up on Monday.
