Two baremetal systems and one VM hang with kernel-5.5.0-1.fc32.x86_64
right after GRUB menu entry selection/timeout for this kernel. Black
screen, menu goes away, I see a white underscore, that's it. Doesn't
I put GRUB into debug mode and I can see the kernel file being loaded
block by block off the media, but oh man something is off with GRUB
because the text scroll is unbearably slow. So I just had to kill it.
Last working for me is kernel-5.5.0-0.rc6.git1.1.fc32.x86_64.
So vboxsf has finally landed upstream. I gave up getting it merged
directly under fs/vboxsf since despite some fs-devel folks saying
that it was as good as it is going to get (given the limitations
of the API exposed by the host) it seems that the fs subsys maintainers
did not have the time to take a look at it.
So I've send it to GKH for merging under drivers/staging instead
and somewhat to my surprise (not complaining) he send it in for
Since this upstream now; and despite being in staging has alread seen
multiple reviews, I would like to get this enabled for the Fedora 5.4
kernels so that shared-folders will just work for users running Fedora
as a VirtualBox guest.
So unless there are any objections I'm going to flip the
configs/fedora/generic/CONFIG_VBOXSF_FS file to m and enable this in rawhide
There are many kernel messages referring to this man page, which
doesn't appear to exist on Fedora. What needs to be done so a user can
just copy+paste this message into Terminal, and learn more about it?

After quite a bit of soul searching, I've decided to step down from
being a full-time Fedora kernel maintainer and move on to other things.
Having come in as a relative outsider to the Fedora community almost
5 years ago, I deeply appreciate you all welcoming me with open arms.
I still expect to be around to some degree but probably not as
directly involved on a day-to-day basis. I would also like to thank
jcline, jforbes and jwboyer for being amazing supportive teammates
during my tenure. Thank you everyone for being patient as I attempted
to fix more bugs than I introduced in the kernel.
