Marcello Tosatti: Linux 2.4.19-pre5

Mar 29, 2002, 23:12 (23 Talkback[s])
Linux 2.4.19-pre5
Date: Fri, 29 Mar 2002 18:47:39 -0300 (BRT)
From: Marcelo Tosatti 
 To: lkml 
 Hi, 
Here goes pre5. I've trimmed down the changelog because its just too big,
and the ones who actually want to see all changelog can get it from
linux.bkbits.net.
This release has -aa writeout scheduling changes, which should improve IO
performance (and interactivity under heavy write loads).
_Please_ test that extensively looking for any kind of problems
(performance, interactivity, etc).
