Kernel looks okay, but unfortunately this still persists on t490s with lid closed and external monitor: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1874782. Worked on 5.7.x

Looks ok for me. Works on baremetal (non UEFI) AMD Ryzen5 3600, Mainboard MSI B450M Mortar Max with prop. nvidia driver from rpmfusion.org (GTX980 card), VirtualBox 6.1.16 from Oracle and Gnome-Desktop. Regression test passed (paxtest, selinux-dac-controls and libhugetlbfs skipped).

This update has been pushed to testing.

This kernel works on my Surface Go 2. The regression I was experiencing on the previous version of the kernel has gone away. Thanks!

Works on my Macchiatobin OK. Wasn't affected by clocksource issue so can't test

[root@alfred kernel-tests]# dmesg | grep clock

Regression tests OK (and submitted) but I'm still waiting for https://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg690904.html to be backported as my onboard mvpp2 network interfaces are still broken post kernel 5.2
