Works for me: desktop 16GB Intel i7-3770 CPU & laptop 8GB Intel i5-2520M CPU Lenovo T420 (the desktop ran the performance test in 10m9s -- but the laptop took 9m33s, about 10 times longer) - all using the Mate Desktop Environment.

[[[ In kernel-5.14.6-300.fc35 the laptop was 10 times slower than the desktop! ]]]

System freezes after few hours. No problem with the kernel-5.14.6-300.fc35.x86_64 and previous versions. Same freeze with F34 https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2021-2323f998a6#comment-2222471 . Regression seems to be introduce with 5.14.7 kernels.

Same problem with kernel-5.14.8-300.fc35.x86_64.

cat /sys/block/*/queue/scheduler

mq-deadline kyber [bfq] none mq-deadline kyber [bfq] none mq-deadline kyber [bfq] none mq-deadline kyber [bfq] none mq-deadline kyber [bfq] none mq-deadline kyber [bfq] none none

If after starting kernel-5.14.8-300.fc35.x86_64 I apply the command below then I have no more gel, it seems OK for moment.

echo mq-deadline | tee /sys/block/*/queue/scheduler

cat /sys/block/*/queue/scheduler

[mq-deadline] kyber bfq none [mq-deadline] kyber bfq none [mq-deadline] kyber bfq none [mq-deadline] kyber bfq none [mq-deadline] kyber bfq none [mq-deadline] kyber bfq none none

Sorry it’s my fault, I confused the -200 and -300 versions of kernel 5.14.8 when I downloaded the packages.

It seems to be fine with special 5.14.8-200.fc34.x86_64 from jforbes. Scheduler is [bfq]. 5 hours uptime without freeze.

I know I already test it and run it for a while, but today I experienced a crash when a KVM guest was running on my Aspire V3-571 V2.11 Intel i7-3632QM (8) @ 3.200GHz. It was running fine for more than three hours, before I started the VM and then, after some 20 minutes testing something on the guest machine the host OS hard locks up requiring me to hold the power button down. I can't get anything from dmesg, or from journalctl. I don't have secure boot enabled: mokutil --sb-state =>SecureBoot disabled

Sorry, the problem I found was on kernel 5.14.8-300.fc35.x86_64
