Works for me: all using the Mate Desktop Environment.

sirius: desktop 16GB Intel i7-3770 CPU desktop (SSD + 5 hard drives in RAID-6) real:10m14.790s user:4m38.172s sys:5m5.651s

sedna: laptop 8GB Intel i5-2520M CPU Lenovo T420 (SSD only) real:105m19.977s user:70m44.825s sys:34m53.782s // This is way longer than it should be, 5.18.4 was under 11 minutes!

mercury: laptop 32GB AMD Ryzen 7 5700U with Radeon 5500 Graphics (SSD only) rea1:19m13.122s user:9m34.715s sys:7m41.189s // Prior to 5.18, it used to take about 14 minutes!

*** I’m intensely curious as to the reason for why sedna seems to randomly fluctuate between short (normally under 11 minutes) & extremely long (100+ minutes) elapsed times for the performance test!

This kernel is working well in Fedora 36 both native and as a VM guest using VirtualBox from RPM Fusion.

As a VM guest, BZ#2097165 is still fixed, and the e1000 driver is loaded and working, and networking is fine.

Regression tests passing native although in a VM sometimes timer-overhead is failing, but that isn't unusual for VMs it seems.

Default and performance regression tests both PASS on a Dell XPS 13 9350 laptop (i7-6560U CPU @ 2.20GHz × 4) and on two NUC6i5SYK (i5-6260U @ 1.80GHz × 4). Working fine.

For me this update breaks Asus USB-N10 Nano Wi-Fi adapter with Realtek 8188EUS. I can still see it in lsusb, but Settings says "No Wi-Fi Adapter Found". I have "r8188eu 2-3:1.0: _rtw_init_xmit_priv failed" in dmesg, if it helps. Wi-Fi works fine in 5.17.13

@drfvd this update does not break it, it was broken in 5.17.15 (and 5.18.4). Follow https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2097526 for fixes. I am guessing short term, the bad patch will be reverted, but it is broken upstream still so a proper fix needs to appear at some point.

@jforbes Thanks for info! I didn't get 5.17.15, nor 5.18.4, so to me it looked like if this update is responsible. Sorry!

Been using it for 10+ hours. No regression noticed. Game performance has been improved compared to 5.17 for me. Using on Ryzen 3200G and 5500 XT 8GB GPU (wayland).

@drfvd

It's impossible for this kernel to have this regression - it has changes only in regard to Intel CPUs. The regression might have appeared earlier or you're looking at a HW issue.

@name that's not true actually. Refer to BX#2097526 more carefully. There is even a patched 5.18.5 that reverts the commit that brought the problem to the driver, and it works. In my case it broke my TP-Link TL-WN725N (same chip-set).

Unfortunately this seems to have broken bluetooth mouse reconnection after resume from suspend: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2100761
