The other two seem to have been addressed. Not sure if the above patch is required for a bootable kernel but was too lazy to build with and without to check if both were bootable. Kernel boots and seems to run normally.

Edit: Looking at the patch it isn't necessary for a gcc-10 build since gcc-10 doesn't need params.h. This just adds it if building on gcc < 10. So it looks like the kernel folks fixed the code for gcc-10.

5.7-rc7

Release Candidate 7, for the 5.7 "mainline" development kernel has been been made available for testing.

The tarball, https://git.kernel.org/torvalds/t/linux-5.7-rc7.tar.gz

Mr. Torvalds' announcement, http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/k...5.3/00406.html

Quote:
......In fact, the biggest excitement this week for me was just that I
upgraded my main machine, and for the first time in about 15 years, my
desktop isn't Intel-based. No, I didn't switch to ARM yet, but I'm now
rocking an AMD Threadripper 3970x. My 'allmodconfig' test builds are
now three times faster than they used to be, which doesn't matter so
much right now during the calming down period, but I will most
definitely notice the upgrade during the next merge window.

Anyway, go out and give this a good final test so that we won't have
any unhappy surprises after 5.7 is released..

Interesting, Linus switched to AMD ... so did John Carmack (Doom/Quake/Oculus VR) recently:

AMD makes the best productivity CPUs these days, so it's not too surprising.

Looks true for "end-looser" grade equipment. But there's another league for "best productivity", superior architectural integration, where Intel still looks to play a leading role:

Once mature enough, these might become mainline for "end-looser" server-grade equipment too.

AMD has some impressive CPUs but I don't think they can touch the sheer enterprise clout, experience and support Intel can provide.

In this context I do of course just refer to a CPU in a box that a single user would be utilizing.

Normal floppy disk support (BLK_DEV_FD)

Hi,
I am wondering why this module is built into the kernel and not available as a separate kernel.


Any help on that. None of my Slackboxes have a running floppy drive so it can reduce the kernel image a bit.



Correct me if it is not true or some hardware might need the module to be inbuilt.
