But the linux-libre-hardened-5.3.8.a-gnu-1 kernel has no issue on the machine, audit messages are gone, loaded the ath9k AR9285 wifi driver , reboots and shuts down properly, wow.

And also linux-libre-pck-5.3.8-gnu-1 kernel has issues with coreboot Lenovo Thinkpad x230 just like the regular kernel.

do you have linux-libre-firmware? I assume yes

many ppl have had problems with linux-libre 5.3.8 but not -hardened. Also, some issues with 5.3.7 were solved in 5.3.8. Please wait for the next update to see if this continues, I've had very little time because of the many exams I've had (due to the contingency in my country, all the exams where anticipated)

but next week I should go normal with kernel maintenance
