Description Matthew Dawson 2016-08-21 20:39:59 UTC
In the current experimental patches, BFQ is currently at v8.  This version has a crash for me (no details, as it hard locks the machine without details).  Upgrading to the latest revision v8r2 + r3 patches from git fixes this crash.  Can the patch set please be updated?

Definitely planning on attempting to update this this weekend; it's been a while, give me a moment :-)

Tested this weekend and works. Noticed that this is in our linux-patches repo:

    Update for BFQ patchset to v8r2. See bug #591828

This will therefore be in the soon to be committed gentoo-sources-4.7.3.
