Thanks Matteo! I can confirm that with the patched NVidia 440.82 driver Kernel 5.7.0 cranks up fine on -current:

Code:
andrew@ilium~$ uname -srp
Linux 5.7.0-ads AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X 16-Core Processor
andrew@ilium~$
And importantly for my purposes VirtualBox load an runs fine as well. I still look forward to a formal NVidia driver upgrade but this will serve for the moment...

An interesting addition, return actually, will be made with the 5.8 kernel. This may be of interest to those who need to use a video camera.

The Linux 5.8 media subsystem changes restore a previously dropped driver for supporting the cameras found on multiple generations of Intel Atom devices..........

.......The media updates for Linux 5.8 were merged overnight and include Atom ISP plus a new Rockchip video decoder IP driver, a ov2740 image sensor driver, and new V4L2 controls for identifying the camera orientation and sensor rotation of cameras on devices........

I cannot recommend kernel 5.4.44. My Asus laptop will not boot with that kernel.

EDIT: My virtual machine that runs -current, however, was quite happy to boot with that update.

YMMV.

EDIT2: The other edit comment should have given me a hint. I had spaced out and not built a initrd for that kernel on the laptop.

With an initrd, it works just fine on that laptop. I'm using it now to write this.

The 5.4.44 kernel is working fine on my desktop. No problems of any kind.

I doubt that I will want to run a 5.4.x kernel in the Year 2025, and it is not only about the hardware support.

Maybe the enterprise or industrial customers will love this super LTS, but I humbly observed that the software evolves, and 5 years is plenty of time for this.

And I want to live in "today" not in England of Middle Ages ...

So, excuse me if those news do not impress me.

If this news makes someone happy then I'm not going to rain on their parade, but even Greg K-H, the guy that maintains the LTS, has always recommended using the latest stable branch over the LTS.

I don't want to -- or more accurately, can't -- run 5.4 now, let alone in 5 years time. I'm sitting here waiting for 5.7.1 to drop, and then I'll be moving on from 5.6.

If things had followed their "normal" pattern, 5.7.1, would have been released late yesterday. As it is, it would appear Greg K-H has taken the weekend off. Watch it drop any minute, now that I've said that.

Since Dave's Unofficial Slackbuilt Kernels are no longer available, I going to have to bite the bullet, dig out my notes, and build my own. Haven't done that in years.

Built 5.7.1 with gcc-10.1.0 and so far everything is fine. Used the patch on the Nvidia driver source (440.82) to build it under 5.7.x
