Hence the "rough" patch.

I honestly don't feel solid on all the configuration changes that need
to happen, so haven't been particularly thorough on auditing those.

Running through "make oldconfig" prompted me with many options about
things I didn't really have a good grasp of, so the 5.5 changes at
essentially just the 5.4*.conf copied to 5.5*.conf, and applying the
copying the resulting .config from building the kernel into git...

I could do the same for 5.6 again blindly taking the new defaults... or
if someone could help with auditing the config updates, that would be

FWIW, also boot-tested linux-libre-arm64-generic with 5.6 as well.

live well,
