Ditto. 5.7.8 has been built and installed.
So far, so good.

YMMV.

The iwlwifi driver now works for me under Slackware. I'm not sure whether 5.7.8, the updated kernel-firmware package or another update helped. Strangely, I can still reproduce the firmware problem under openSUSE Tumbleweed.

Still haven't found a description of how "bug fixes" are dripping down to older kernels? apart from comparing changelogs?

Do you know, where to find this info?

But the fixes for ALSA and not least btrfs (!) surely would make everyone wanting these...

FWIW, I built the new gcc-10.2.0, then the kernel-5.7.10 with it and also nvidia 450.57 driver. No surprises and everything runs so far without problems.
