Subject: Re: Performance regressions in networking & storage benchmarks in Linux kernel 5.8

Hello Thomas,

Thank you very much for your comments.

Since the performance regressions were fixed when we tested version 5.9-rc4, we 
were not reporting it as an issue and our intention was just to share this as an
 information only.

thanks for letting us know, but the issue is known already and the fix
has been backported to the stable kernel version 5.8.6 as of Sept. 3rd.

Please always check the latest stable version.
