OK, I only mentioned it because the last 5.9 development kernel didn't
have the issue. From what you say above I think that is because
development kernels and stable kernels use different spec files, right?
I like to update everything in synch, kernel, headers, tools, etc.
whether they need it or not. I guess I'll have to start building them
separately from the src.rpms if the kernel spec gets too out of date.
Right, the 5.9 development kernel was built from rawhide, which does
include these things because ELN needs them. The 5.9.0-300 is in a
stable branch where all of that is stripped. I don't just copy the
spec back to old releases, I only move bring back patches, configs,
and filter changes generally.
