nitwhiz11282229dAre you even using the stuff changed in the last 150 commits?
Fast-Nop27904229dYeah bleeding edge on servers totally isn't scary because so far nothing has happened. I don't think this will convince anyone who has real money on the table.
IntrusionCM2352229dHm. Servers are delicate.
I tend to stick to LTS kernels... As especially breakage in the FS layer can become a fuckfest.
(Ooops... Data... Gone... Sometimes. Not Always. :()
But I think in most cases the gain from a newer kernel is really small. Especially when the server is isolated as in has no fscking way to communicate with the internet...
mitigations=off and a large chunk of performance worries will be history...
The last big thing my sleepy brain remembers was blkmq, default since 5.0… But available since long time.
Most FS stuff requires an porting of the latest tools (e.g. xfsprogs) to be useful and then formatting the partitions, to have the new superblock. So not so easy...
And anything else? Cannot remember. Might be, if anyone knows, I'm interested.
