The first point-release of Linux kernel 5.1 was released today without anything major standing out. There are some Bluetooth fixe, scsi fixes, some USB fixes and some small bugfixes for a few staging-drivers.

No huge news.

Full ChangeLog can be found at

One minor little tip, 5.1 and 5.1.1 has the lzo-rle technology and uses it as a compressor for zswap. You may want to benefit from this by adding

echo 1 > /sys/module/zswap/parameters/enabled
echo 6 > /sys/module/zswap/parameters/max_pool_percent

to some script running at startup such as /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Have a great day.
