@uservikol -- you didn't say which tests in the test suites failed and I'd guess a lot of people don't realize there is a link to particular tests.
If you click on "kernel regression" above where it says "Test Case kernel regression" it will take you to a web page that describes how to run two kernel regression test suites.
I think it would be clearer if it was labeled "Test Case kernel test suites" or if it had separate lines for "Test Case Default Tests" and "Test Case Performance Tests".
The way it is now, if you don't click on the link, it could be read as asking if you'd noticed any regressions in your own personal testing.
Default and Performance regression tests PASS on NUC6i5SYK, Intel® Core™ i5-6260U CPU @ 1.80GHz × 4, Mesa Intel® Iris(R) Graphics 540 (SKL GT3). Also, has been working fine on my laptop for the past 3 days (Dell XPS 13 9350).
Default and Performance tests PASSED on NUC6i5SYK, Intel® Core™ i5-6260U CPU @ 1.80GHz × 4, Mesa Intel® Iris(R) Graphics 540 (SKL GT3). Looks good. Using it on my personal laptop, Dell XPS 13.
Using it on my personal laptop without any problems (Dell XPS 13 9350).
Passed defaul and performance regression tests on NUC6i5SYK, Intel Core i5-6260U CPU @ 1.80GHz × 4, Mesa Intel Iris(R) Graphics 540 (SKL GT3).
My comment was in response to @garrett about what happens if the beta goes out with rc7 and the bluetooth scanning problem. I agee with @garrett above, that rc8 should be in the beta. But if they can't get an exception to include rc8 in the beta, I was asking if they could instead push rc8 to the testing repo now so that the impacted beta users have the problem fixed as soon as they update (since the beta has the testing repo enabled).
Bluetooth works on rc8 on this NUC6i5SYK. Hadn't been detecting devices on this NUC6 on a couple previous 5.17 rc (bluetooth still worked booting with 5.16, but not 5.17 until rc8). Passed default and performance regression tests.
