Hi All,

Linus Torvalds has released the Linux 5.1 stable kernel. :-)
Linux 5.1 switches the PowerPC port to use the generic swiotlb and noncoherent dma ops, and to use more generic code for the coherent direct mapping, as well.
The Cyrus patch has become smaller because of the integration of the 'fsl_pci.c' patch into the new kernel 5.1.
There was a problem with MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS. We reported this issue to the Linuxppc-dev mailing list and they fixed it.
We have activated CONFIG_SPARSEMEM for the X1000 in the kernel configuration.
There was a problem with the VLC player. It didn't play any videos anymore. We created a patch and reported it to the Linuxppc-dev mailing list. They created a new patch and integrated it into the official kernel source code. After that the VLC player works without any problems again.
There were some issues with new CF cards if they were connected to the onboard CompactFlash Card Slot from the X1000. Note: The CompactFlash (CF) card slot is wired to the CPU local bus. It is typically used to hold the Linux kernels and initial ramdisks. We solved these issues with a new pata_of_platform-v2 patch.
The initialization and use of a secondary graphics card (FirePro 2260) does not work. Bug report: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109345. We are working on a solution: http://forum.hyperion-entertainment.com ... =50#p47877

Thanks a lot to Tom, SailorMH, and Musa for testing the kernels on the X1000 and many thanks to Skateman, Kilaueabart, and Allan (acefnq) for testing the kernels on the X5000.
