Current upgrade


So, I upgraded -current just now, and the changelog says that the kernel will now be 4.19.70. However, it upgraded to 4.19.71. This was not a problem, it just threw me for a second. I just looked again and it still says x.70.

Not complaining at all. It was kind of fun for a semi-emergency.

Wow! I just did a kernel upgrade on all of my -current boxes to 4.19.70. Will upgrade to 4.19.71 after dinner.

I think it was mentioned that 4.19.70 had a laptop-related bug?

Probably the DUSK efforts are already "assimilated" and on the next minute after a new kernel release is pushed on kernel.org, a particular automated build server from Minnesota goes nuts with "-j32" .

Not that I complain, thought...
