Peter Robinson pointed out https://lore.kernel.org/all/CAMj1kXHgvv0FYZXsFm8KisXuR6t47-nXtgOs0Gyva4MJEJ_4Ow@mail.gmail.com/ as a reason we may not want to ship this.

Perhaps worth pulling the fix linked in that thread in advance of it landing in -stable then? https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=e7d24c0aa8e678f41457d1304e2091cac6fd1a2e

CONFIG_GCC_PLUGIN_RANDSTRUCT is not set

CONFIG_GCC_PLUGINS is not set

CONFIG_GCC_PLUGIN_STACKLEAK is not set

Kernel works fine in QEMU/KVM with cpu-passthrough (AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 6850U, x86_64). Regression test PASS.

Tested with F40 KDE Spin, up to date with updates-testing enabled. tainted = 0. I'm testing with confined user accounts (user_u in this case): expected experience.

BZ#'s not verified.

The bluetooth regression (BZ#2274047) is definitely fixed in this. No other regressions noted.
