GCC11.1 is mainlined in arch, so this means znver3 support can kick off on this kernel. The graysky compile patches have been updated too.

This kernel now natively supports the znver3 arch, but this kernel will most likely keep working on all AMD ryzen hardware. It's better to be able to address certain small perks or issues per architecture now and in the future.

If you use znver2 based hardware, please use linux-amd-znver2
If you use raven based hardware, please use linux-amd-raven

Tired of compiling? Use this binary repo instead! Add this at the end of /etc/pacman.conf :

[linuxkernels]
Server = http://nhameh.ovh/$repo/$arch
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll

Linux Kernel 5.13 git development log:

      amdgpu:
       - Revert GFX9/10 doorbell fixes, we just end up trading one bug for
         another

Yeah, totaly didn't see that one coming ..

5.13 Coming up.

I reverted the faulty "doorbell" (thats how they call it in the git...) commits to remove the idle bug as referenced in the linux-slim and linux-amd-znver2 aur comments

FYI, With the current kernelrelease I have a problem with my SIENNA (6800 series) GPU. The idle usage is through the roof, for some reason the GPU is not clocking back. There seems to be something using it but I have no idea what. This is at the kernel level.

I have succesfully removed the problem on my linux-slim kernel by reverting the "doorbell" commits which seems to cause this high usage bug (in some way I do not understand)

I have searched around alot EVERYWHERE the last few days, and it seems to me I am the ONLY one with this problem (or a sienna gpu?), if there is a need for the fix on this kernel, let me know and I will make it so.

5.11.2 still does not contain the upstream amdgpu fixes, but atleast they are spotted in the master tree of stable:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux.git/commit/?id=9c712c9c382ca69a955e3a384fc245ad8c42b005

Which leads me to believe they will finally be merged in 5.11.3

Until then, enjoy this prepatched kernel I guess..

Looks like the amdgpu patches are still not mainlined, so... enjoy this patched kernel I guess? Can't really follow why it is so hard to merge these commits to stable.

Hey fellow AMD users, this is just a PSA; Be sure to check this thread out: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/lnmet0/an_update_on_usb_connectivity_with_500_series/

As it turns out, I myself was/is also affected by those problems. But mostly the 'replug' happens so fast I don't even notice it. But my kernel logs sure does! :

Lets hope AMD adresses them soon!

I identified the AMDgpu troubles in the linux-next tree and "backported" the patch

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/commit/?id=85f4f00c1e88b2a5aced59cca7354631e8889dfb

Description:

This reverts commit 8866a67ab86cc0812e65c04f1ef02bcc41e24d68.

This breaks hotplug of HDMI on some systems, resulting in
a blank screen also causes failures for displays to light up
on other systems.

There are a bunch of other fixes in upstream (linux-next), but this one seems standalone and is compatible with the stable tree. I'm not going to put everything upstream inhere, this seems to be enough for me to supress all the AMDGPU errors.

I tested this on 2 machines already and it seems to have good results.

Hmmm, I had some trouble with the amdgpu driver on a random boot on this release, but it appears to be random and its very hard to recreate for me (it happens very rarely it seems). It could also just be my new SIENNA hardware acting up. Keep me posted if there are any major problems with amdgpu, I personally think it was just a one-off.

I am currently experiencing some trouble with building this particular kernel on the new version, please hang on while I identify the problem..

The point is, mkinitcpio must not be part of your kernel package at all. Which tool you use, whether dracut, mkinitcpio must not affect your kernel image package in any case. This is sad, your kernel image is well done, and this mix with mkinitcpio administration is a bad design flaw. Sorry.
