This would be the third kernel update in a row that will not boot as a Xen dom0 or a PV domU, even though Fedora's kernel team has worked with the Xen developers per bug 1592976 and we now have two tiny patches which have been sent on to LKML that fix it and only touch the Xen portion of the tree. It would be great if they could be included.

wfm: desktop 16GB Intel i7-3770 CPU (performance test elapsed 9m37s), laptop 8GB Intel i5-2520M CPU Lenovo T420 (performance test elapsed 106m37s) - all using the Mate Desktop Environment, again the laptop took an excessive amount of time to perform the performance test!

wfm on i7-5820K. no regressions noted.

The problem https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1572944 is resolved at least in my case. Doesn't hang on boot like the previous 4.17-releases and I don't have to randomly hammer my keyboard anymore ;)

Also 4.17.5 is out ;)

Since I fully updated from updates-testing today I experienced two system hangs, when even sysrq was not working (and unfortunately nothing in the logs). I can't say it's the kernel's fault, but it's a likely candidate. Let's keep it in testing for a little longer.

Since there's not been a stampede of additional reports of system hangs I'm going to push this.

Booting on GCE properly. 4.17.3-200.fc28.x86_64 does not due to the crng init issue.

This update has been pushed to stable.
