The patches mentioned back in March for bringing up Lunar Lake with the e1000e driver is the initial bits seen so far in “-next” code for Linux 5.15. Just some basic changes with new PCI IDs are needed for getting Lunar Lake working with this driver along the same codepaths as Tiger Lake / Alder Lake / Meteor Lake. And a related patch was also merged. That Lunar Lake support is now successfully living in net-next ahead of 5.15.
Details on Lunar Lake are still scarce while with time we should see the meatier Linux support patches that should reveal more interesting details. But for now we are at least thankful Intel is continuing in their stellar trajectory of punctual open-source support with most bits often landing well in advance of hardware launches.
