SubjectLinux 4.8: Reported regressions as of Sunday, 2016-08-28
Hi! Here is my second regression report for Linux 4.8. It lists 11
regressions. 5 of them are new; 5 mentioned in the last report two
weeks ago got fixed.

FWIW: A small detail: I did not include "Regression - SATA disks behind
USB ones on v4.8-rc1, breaking boot. [Re: Who reordered my disks]"
( ) in below list
report. The discussion mentions that device names like /dev/sd? are not
considered stable as they might change depending on various factors --
like the order in which modules are loaded or other timing issues (like
in this case). That is how it is afaik (even if it's not well known),
and that's why I didn't include the issue; let me know if you think it
should be on the list.

OTOH I included "Commit cb4f71c429 deliberately changes order of
network interfaces" ( )
for now, as I think traditional network interface names (eth0, eth1, ...)
might be considered stable -- but I'm not sure, that's why I raise it

Anyway, you know the drill: Are you aware of any other regressions?
Then please let me know. And tell me if there is anything in the
report that shouldn't be there.

Ciao, Thorsten

P.S.: Thanks to all those that Aaro Koskinen, Hans de Goede, Pavel
Machek for CCing me when reporting regressions. Much appreciated! Ohh,
and thx to all those that replied when I asked them for status updates
when things look stuck.

P.P.S: Sorry, I did not manage to compile a report last weekend. I
visited a FLOSS conference and there got hit by a flu that slowed be
down all week :-/ That's why there won't be a regression report for
4.7. I'll be travelling again next weekend, so there won't be a
regression report next Sunday :-/
