Andrew Morton: Linux 2.6.10-rc1-mm2

Oct 29, 2004, 13:45 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Andrew Morton)

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.10-rc1/2.6.10-rc1-mm2/

  • There are a bunch of CPU scheduler changes here in the load balancing area. They have been shown to help some workloads, but extra performance testing is needed.
  • More fiddling with the memory reclaim code. We're making gradual progress here, so people who have had issues in the past with VM behaviour should keep an eye out for improvements or regressions.
  • sparc64 and possibly other architectures fail to compile at all due to< a kbuild problem. A fix is in progress. Apparently doing
    touch include/asm-foo/Kbuild
    
    will work around this.

Changes since 2.6.10-rc1-mm1:
