Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.4.0-test12-pre3

Nov 29, 2000, 07:28 (1 Talkback[s])
Date: Tue, 28 Nov 2000 22:57:35 -0800 (PST)
From: Linus Torvalds torvalds@transmeta.com
To: Kernel Mailing List 
Subject: test12-pre3
 
The bulk of this is architecture updates (most lately mips64). The most
interesting (but fairly small) part is the VM cleanups. Any day now
kiobuf's can just use PageDirty on everything, and we won't have any nasty
races any more.
