Don't know the LE guide lines here... but why not simply wait until severe show stoppers are fixed before adopting a new kernel (instead of always being on the bleeding edge)?

Cause you guys _find_ those show stoppers and then we can file bug reports. Kodi is a very special use case with immense pressure on hardware and drivers. We cannot rely on others to make this testing. The bugreports that came out of this thread had a very high value for now. Bugs are filed. That's the way OSS development works.

Updated logs with 4.6 (dmesg with drm.debug=0xe) on the bugtracker are still welcome to bump the bugs filed.

My proposal would be more like: try to be bleeding edge, and after identifying a severe showstopper, file a bug report upstream and revert to last known good version until the the bug gets fixed. In this case I guess many Intel users stopped testing, because these builds rendered being unusable for them.

But of course, you get more bug reports with the current procedure. Understood and taken. Big Grin

Thanks for all your work and efforts.
