	I had the feeling that SQM did not start automatically, as none of its output made it into the log (so log read came up empty for SQM debug messages), but "tc -d qdisc" confirmed that all is well, so that is purely cosmetic...

	Confirmed, works, for swap and for storage (I only tested mounting by partition, since I can not remember UUIDs)

	I notice you did some clean up and it looks like the writable roots space got larger (by ~1MB, so that looks quite significant)

	So far no DNS issues, it just works, also I ran netalyzr to exercise the DNS a bit and no errors or messages in either log read or dmesg … so knock on wood. But since my network is not multi-homed I guess that was expected...

	Country DE, channel 44 HT40+, works, I get link rates that clearly show 40MHz channels in use.

	So far, or rather so short, my testing shows no obvious showstoppers in this release...

	Thanks again for all your work in fixing everybody's internet.
