Kernel 5.15 has been released, and brief details are here: http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/2110.3/07730.html
As expected, this is OK with the latest NVIDIA (495.44) and VMware 6.2.0 – with the patchset from https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules/tree/workstation-16.2.0
The kernel now includes fully-functional drivers for NTFS, as mentioned in a previous (pre-release) article: https://rglinuxtech.com/?p=2951
My fstab entry for this (for user id 1000, and mountpoint /win10) is:
UUID=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX /win10 ntfs3 uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=0022 0 0
– and everything seems to be working as it should..
