Just to confirm: I built and installed kernel 5.12-rc8 on an RX2800 today and
it boots fine without any additional patches. That means once 5.12 hits Debian
unstable, we will have working installer images for RX2800 and similar machines
again for the first time since Debian Wheezy (or even Squeeze since Wheezy had
elilo issues on some of these machines).
