Linus Torvalds added some new Radeon and PowerPC source code for the kernel 4.6 to the Git yesterday. Because of that I created the RC1-2 for testing.

Hi All,

I cross compiled the RC3 today. I'd like to know how fast is a cross compiled kernel. Could you please test this kernel?

Linus Torvalds released the final version of kernel 4.6 today.

New:

Many many many thanks for testing the alphas and release candidates. :-)

It also includes:

  • KVM_BOOK3S_64_PR
Quote

Support running guest kernels in virtual machines on processors without using hypervisor mode in the host, by running the guest in user mode (problem state) and emulating all privileged instructions and registers.
This is not as fast as using hypervisor mode, but works on machines where hypervisor mode is not available or not usable, and can emulate processors that are different from the host processor, including emulating 32-bit processors on a 64-bit host.


  • Mac-on-Linux support
  • network support for AROS hosted
  • support for 4 serial ports
  • Bluetooth USB dongle support
  • kernel tracing with ftrace
  • ubuntu MATE 15.04, 15.10, 16.04 LTS, and 16.10 support
  • Debian 8 support
  • Btrfs support
  • systemd support
  • Wacom Intuos/Graphire tablet support (USB)
  • Support for the new interrupt handling
  • Boot by UUID or disk label with an initrd
  • Support for the Power Statistics tool
  • Linux kernel icon for OS4.1 by Tommysammy
