extremely weird - there simply was no change between -0 and -1 that
could have affected it. If you do this on the -1 kernel:

echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/preempt_wakeup_timing
echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/debug_direct_keyboard

then you'll get precisely the -0 kernel, bit for bit. (plus the symbol
export fix in rtc.ko, which should have zero relevance to your setup.)

[note that debug_direct_keyboard is dangerous.]

so i believe the explanation has to be something else:

- are you sure the build is correct?

- are you sure it still works with the -0 kernel, maybe the bug is transient?


Removing every software update i did between 25.0 and 25.1 resolved the problem, i think there was something with my gentoo init scripts. Although 25.0 was working fine with the software updates. I am now going to reinstall the updates one by one to see which one caused it.
