"Now that we have all these independent kernel trees, which one should we use? Which kernel is faster? Which ones are more reliable and which ones are bound to cause you problems? I set out to answer these questions for myself, so I downloaded the two most controversial kernel types (the standard kernel/Andrea Arcangeli type and the Alan Cox/Rik van Riel kernel type) and pitted them against each other. Andrea Arcangeli has his own aa tree, but for most purposes it is very similar to the standard Linux tree. That's because the virtual memory engine in the standard Linux was actually written by Andrea Arcangeli and improved by Ben LaHaise, Linux Torvalds, Andrew Morton, Alan Cox, and Marcelo Tosatti (the 2.4.x maintainer), among others.
