valve futex/fsync patches have been ported to zen kernel

I´m a big fan of the zen kernel somehow I missed this and didn't notice the update till now, but since the 25th of august fsync/futex valve patches have been ported to zen kernel. I think that means zen kernel 5.2.11 and above.

I'm just trying zen kernel 5.2.13 zen1 (manually compiled) and it seems to be working ok.
I don't know if this is included in the liquorix ppa
I'm not sure if liquorix carries the same patches.

If anyone doesn't know what futex/fsync patch is, it is an improvement of the esync implementation to better integrate to Proton and improve performance, some proton games have a huge benefit in terms of performance from that patch.

You might want to update because this is a newer kernel than the 5.0.20 at the valve ppa repo.

can you compile one with Kernel 4.18
Some reason my Mesa and AMDVLK driver doesnt work with any newer Kernels above 5.0
Ubuntu 18.04.3
