Kernel 5.6 →

As mentioned the last time, I’m still tracking and building latest kernel releases. 5.6 was on my radar for some time and I’m going to stick to it for longer period. One of the most important features1 of this release is addition of WireGuard. I was building it in for the older releases but now this step and patch is no longer necessary as it’s part of mainline 🎉

One of the differences though is the place where it should be enabled:

-> Device Drivers
  -> Network device support
    -> WireGuard secure network tunnel

Latest bcc (version 0.14.0) released recently added support for kernels up to 5.6 as well.

  1. At least to me 🤷🏻‍♂️
