Andrew Morton: Linux 2.6.13-rc3-mm3

Jul 28, 2005, 17:30 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Andrew Morton)

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.13-rc3/2.6.13-rc3-mm3/

  • Added the anonymous pagefault scalability enhancement patches.

    I remain fairly dubious about this - it seems a fairly specific and complex piece of work to speed up one extremely specific part of one type of computer's one type of workload. Surely there's a better way :(

    The patches at present spit warnings or don't compile on lots of architectures. x86, x86_64, ppc64 and ia64 are OK.

  • There's a pretty large x86_64 update here which naughty maintainer wants in 2.6.13. Extra testing, please.
  • Dropped git-net.patch (davem's net devel tree). I'm seeing weird TCP hangs. I'm fairly sure they're present in mainline, but was unable to reproduce it without git-net.patch when I was actually trying.

Changes since 2.6.13-rc3-mm2:
