Subject: Regression report for mainline, extra issue [2022-03-18]
Date: Fri, 18 Mar 2022 19:04:56 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Linus! Just FYI, a couple of regression reports showed up in the
last few days and I thought you might wanted to known about them
a bit before releasing 5.17. Hence a quick manual regression
report focusing on regression from this cycle:

[ *NEW* ] HID: multitouch: right touchpad button is disabled on recent kernels

Introduced in 37ef4c19b4c6 (v5.17-rc5)

Noteworthy links:


Patch is available and was tested successfully today, but looks
like José only wants to sent it out for review next week:

[ *NEW* ] cifs: smb3: incorrect session setup check for multiuser mounts


Introduced in 73f9bfbe3d81 (v5.17-rc1)

There are two patches to fix this, Steve might sent one to you

cifs: Failure to access cifs mount of samba share after resume from sleep


Introduced in v5.16..v5.17-rc5

This was known for a while, but regzbot didn't sort it properly
into the "regressions from this cycle" category. Sorry about that.

No fix in sight (devs tried in the past few days) and reporter
has no way to test patches in the next few days:

[ *NEW* ] "vmwgfx: probe of 0000:00:0f.0 failed with error -16" in guest


According to the bugzilla ticket it seems to be a regression from
this cycle. A fix is available here (included in -next since early
February :-/ ):

But according to the patch description its fixing a issue introduced
in 5.11. Not sure who's right.

FWIW, I just noticed there is a new regression report in bko
which I didn't look closer at yet; looks like it's a report
from a distro (Fedora) kernel, but I'd thought I nevertheless
briefly mention it:

Bug 215696 - Kernel Oops since kernel-5.17 on dual socket Intel
Xeon Gold servers - kernel NULL pointer dereference

Ciao, Thorsten
