Now the rebase to # kernel 5.7 is prepared for # 31, too: src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/kernel/c/…

5.7.7, to be precise, which is now also prepared for # 32.
[bookmark=https://twitter.com/knurd42rhfc/status/1277630119364956160]# 32 will get # # 5.7.6 (or something newer) soon.

The rebase to 5.7.6 was committed (src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/kernel/c/… ) and rpms are building currently. Those will head to updates-testing for a few days before they or even newer pkgs get shipped as regular update.

It's in the 'mainline' and 'mainline-wo-mergew' branches. The 'stable' branch has 5.7.2; the 'fedora' branch has 5.6.18 (as F31 and F32 still use 5.6.x)
