Linux 5.19 Looking Real Good On The HP Dev One, XanMod + Liquorix Also Tested

Right away with the I/O tests there are two major takeaways... Linux 5.19 is looking very damn good and Liquorix performs quite poorly. Linux 5.19's I/O performance is similar to what we have seen on other modern systems when testing Linux 5.19 Git as there are a lot of I/O improvements in this new kernel version. Liquorix performing very poorly also isn't a surprise. Liquorix is using the BFQ I/O scheduler by default while all the other tested kernels were not using any for the speedy NVMe storage on this system. As we have seen on other tests, the default Liquorix configuration with BFQ was sacrificing throughput.

The 4K random write performance was also looking very good on Linux 5.19 for some tests while the XanMod kernel also showed an advantage in some of the runs.

The I/O performance for Linux 5.19 is a nice improvement at least on modern hardware platforms I've been testing.

XanMod was a front-runner in the Compile Bench tests.
