What is in Linux 5.12?
Linus Torvalds has released 5.12 of the Linux kernel about a month ago. Linux 5.12 comes with Hyper-V fun, more support for ACRN IoT hypervisor, PlayStation controller support, ‘novelty port’ to ancient Nintendo, and small fixes.
- arm64 device tree files
- some x86 perf event fixes (and a couple of tooling ones)
- various minor driver fixes (AMD and i915 GPU fixes
- stand out, but honestly, that’s not because they are big, but because the rest is even smaller)
a couple of small reverts, and a few
- locking fixes (one KVM serialization fix, one memory ordering fix for rwlocks).
