Phoronix on Kernel
As expected, AMD today finally released the Opteron A1100 "Seattle" SoC but sadly the 96Boards HuskyBoard or other lower-cost A1100-powered products have yet to be announced.
The F2FS file-system pull request is quite exciting while the XFS churn for the Linux 4.5 merge window isn't as meaty.
With the XFS file-system updates for Linux 4.5 there is now better CRC validation during log recovery, log recovery fixes, DAX support fixes, an AGFL size calculation fix, code cleanups, project quota ENOSPC notification via netlink, and tracing/debug improvements. Details on the XFS changes for Linux 4.5 can be found via this pull request.
For those relying upon the out-of-tree ZFS or Reiser4 file-systems, they have each been updated now to work with this week's release of the Linux 4.4 kernel.
Last weekend ZFS On Linux 0.6.5.4 was released. ZOL v0.6.5.4 brought support for the Linux 4.4 kernel while continuing to support older kernel versions going all the way back to Linux 2.6.32. This ZFS On Linux update also brought a number of stability fixes, better support/stability for NFS-exported snapshots, and a variety of other fixes.
