Ryzen does indeed implement the x86-64 ISA, but it introduced a few changes which matter for a kernel such as Linux. Ryzen 5000 is part of Ryzen Gen 3, which uses a new “family” identifier, 19h (the previous Ryzen generation was family 17h).

Your tail command also gets its input from the page cache. The whole point of the page cache is that a process (any process, not only the process writing to the file) can find the wanted data quickly from the cache, without accessing the disk.

The only libraries which could be used in a kernel are libraries with no external dependencies of their own, including to the C library (which ...

See man cgroups: In cgroups v1, a distinction is drawn between processes and tasks. In this view, a process can consist of multiple tasks (more commonly called threads, from a user-space perspective, and called such in the remainder of this man page). In cgroups v1, it is possible to independently manipulate the cgroup memberships of the threads in a ...
