Relax, in 2 years another kernel is not so bad.

If this was GKH's criteria with previous kernels, it's likely that it will just take some time for various organizations to switch to it and state what their intended support would be before GKH makes his decision.

I'm hoping for a 6 year support period, just like all LTS kernels from 4.4 on have received, but it is likely we won't know for sure until late this year or early next.

Anyone here noticing issues with nfsd on 5.10.11? I regularly serve video to a Windows or Mac computer using nfs. Since installing 5.10.11, using Kodi's built in nfs code, its impossible to stream reliably (on both windows and mac). Mapping/mounting the nfs directories in windows and then trying to play files in VLC is unreliable. Weirdly mounting the nfs directories in mac and playing in VLC plays fine.

Reverting back to 5.10.10 and all the issues go away, everything above works perfectly. I notice there were a few nfsd changes in 5.10.11.

I guess I'll just have to adapt to it's absence and start using screen/tmux on the consoles from now. Scrollback wasn't maintained over a console swap anyway, so it always had its limitations, but I did use it a lot. Can't believe I'm the only one.
Does anyone already know whether or not the console scrollback function exists in the 5.10.x kernel series?

I have used the scrollback feature quite a bit over the years, and would use it more often if the system maintained a separate scrollback-buffer for each console.

It's gone. From all the latest stable kernels, I think.

Luckily the muscle memory starts to fade after a couple of months and is replaced by a vague sense of disappointment.

Yesterday I was testing a new shell script and needed scroll back to view the full output. On a laptop screen. I had to launch X to use a terminal window so I could scroll through the output. I still haven't forgiven Linus.

For those who want a fancy terminal, with scrollback and all the bells ringing, there is always for you the modern, KMS accelerated KMSCON which support even CJK (Chinese ideograms).
