LoongArch Picks Up New CPU Capabilities With Linux 6.1
Linux 6.1 already landed EFI boot support for LoongArch while on Wednesday the main LoongArch CPU port updates were merged.
This cycle there is refactoring of the TLB/cache operations, qspinlock support, support for perf events, Kexec and Kdump handling, a generic BUG() handler implemented for the architecture, eBPF JIT support, an ACPI-based laptop driver, and updates to the default kernel configuration (defconfig).
Overall a busy feature cycle for LoongArch with Linux 6.1. The full list of changes can be found via this Git merge.
