I have a multi-boot system with Arch Linux, FreeBSD, OS X, and Windoze. 
Arch Linux kernel version is up to 5.19.2. Should that affect our decision?

[zeus@olympus ~]$ uname -a
Linux 5.19.2-arch1-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Wed, 17 Aug 
2022 13:48:51 +0000 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[zeus@olympus ~]$ uname -srm
Linux 5.19.2-arch1-1 x86_64

Will look at sysctl compat.linux.osrelease. Could someone give any 
direction in rebuilding my base-c7 or perhaps I can create base-c8. Thanks.
