Looking good on Intel i7-6700 system with Nvidia driver (akmod) and on Intel i5-7500 with Intel 630 graphics. 5.12 fixes a serious lockup issue that occurs in 5.11 with a specialty system copies to more than 20 flash drives simultaneously.

I am pushing this to stable, as it fixes various things for a number of people. I am aware of the ath11k issue, unfortunately it took the upstream maintainer a bit to respond with which patch was missed for stable to fix that. They have responded, and I did include that patch in the 5.12.6 builds which are building now and should be available in updates-testing very soon.

Freeze only since 12.5. Maybe coincidence but adding it here "watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#10 stuck for 804s!" - AMD Ryzen. 29 kernel related errors during the freeze in problem reporting! I have to currently take back my thumbs up from earlier. Something to possibly be aware of. Haven't seen this at all previously.
