I meant "please download Linux 6.0 (ideally through git, that you have
everything to perform a bisection), add the config from a working kernel
(if config-5.9.13-051903 is one, yeah, then take that) as .config and
then run "make olddefconfig" before compiling and installing the kernel
to see if 6.0 fails with that config that was working.
