Ahead of the Linux 6.9-rc7 kernel being released later today, some last minute pull requests for the week have enabled some new bits of hardware support where only new device IDs are necessary and thus safe to add at this late stage of Linux 6.9 development.

First up, the previously mentioned ASUS ROG Raikiri controller support was sent out today as part of the input subsystem updates. As mentioned last week, that Microsoft Xbox / PC gamer controller just needed new vendor and device IDs added to the common XPad driver. Now that this input pull request was sent in with that Raikiri support and an Amimouse driver fix, that gaming controller should be good to use by Linux gamers on v6.9-rc7+ kernels.

Another early Sunday morning pull request ahead of Linux 6.9-rc7 is char/misc fixes. That pull adds the Intel Lunar Lake Point M device ID to the MEI driver, which is part of the ongoing Lunar Lake platform enablement for Linux. To the DFL-PCI FPGA driver it also adds the PCI sub-device ID for the Intel D5005. That's for the Intel FPGA PAC D5005 with Stratix 10 SX FPGA.

Look for Linux 6.9-rc7 to be out later today while the Linux 6.9 stable kernel will hopefully be out next Sunday, 12 May, if no last minute issues arise.
