Given my anticipation for a certain game, I've decided, under the circumstances, to use this kernel. I'm not much for release candidates, preferring instead to wait for a point release before compiling it, but I've had some issues come up with the 4.11 series, and decided to give it a whirl. I am much pleased with 4.12. Not only does it not complain about my Corsair M65 gaming mouse, but it doesn't complain about EFI_MEMMAP not being enabled. Both minor annoyances, but I'm glad to see them gone anyway. I've noticed a minor tick upward in system stability as well. I'm wondering if it has to do with the new schedulers in the new kernel. The newest NVIDIA driver works with it as well. Another win.

Anyway, I'm glad I took the risk. I'm looking forward to seeing this released.

Yes, thank you. I looked at your patch on Sunday when I saw your name in the commit logs.

I don't have a UFS File System any more but I wonder if they'll backport your Patch into 4.4.72, etc ?

The same code is in 4.4.71 ...

Thanks for sharing !

Code:
<snip ~linux/fs/ufs/super.c ; lines 812-818>
 812         uspi->s_dirblksize = UFS_SECTOR_SIZE;
 813         super_block_offset=UFS_SBLOCK;
 814 
 815         /* Keep 2Gig file limit. Some UFS variants need to override 
 816            this but as I don't know which I'll let those in the know loosen
 817            the rules */
 818         switch (sbi->s_mount_opt & UFS_MOUNT_UFSTYPE) {

Probably not and for most folks not needed.

The fs/ufs patch fixes a UFS filesystem bug that started with Linux 4.8.4 where copying a file from a UFS filesystem that is larger than 2GB gets truncated down to 2GB.

So they don't have to backport the patch to 4.4 or any kernel older than 4.8.4.

There is a possible use for the patch in older kernels if you are using the R/W feature of UFS. It might help to write files larger than 2GB. But I have not tested the R/W feature of UFS and UFS R/W is not turned on in Slackware kernels.

On a related note, there is another patch for FreeBSD partitions on MSDOS partitioned disks.
That block/partitons patch makes all the FreeBSD sub-partitions visible on Linux including the swap and other sub-partitions. This patch is only in the 4.12 series for now, but could also be backported to earlier kernels.

Both of these patches are posted in the BSD forum here on LinuxQuestions.org:

Linux kernel: Critical UFS file system bug in 4.9 and 4.11 kernels (4.8.4 and above)

FreeBSD - linux kernel: sda3: <bsd:bad subpartition - ignored

.5 didn't last very long. Looking at the Changelog, seems to be mostly drm/i915 stuff. Oh well, I wanted to change a kernel option anyway.

Thanks for the heads-up.

The others (4.4.43 for i686, and 4.9.4 for x86_64 and i686) should follow in the next couple of hours

This is entirely automatic and still quite experimental. Testing? I've heard of it. Feedback welcome
I can't access https://dusk.idlemoor.tk as of 2017-06-17.

Anybody else having this problem?

Pinging the IP works for me as well as does https://blog.idlemoor.tk/.

Same here. However the hostname is resolved[1]. I just sent an email to David.

PS [1] and I can ping the IP.
