I agree, the amount of changes we've made since 4.5.20 qualifies for a
new release. I test HEAD on x86 and x86-64 regularly, and there are no
known regressions since 4.5.20.
The following pre-release work have to be done:
- merge pending patches if any (please speak up);
- sync syscallent.h and ioctlent.h files with the latest linux kernel;
- sync debian/ changes;
- test on supported non-x86 architectures.
I've updated linux/ioctlent.h already, and I think I can update x86,
x86_64 and maybe arm files myself, but I definitely need help to update
and test other architectures.
