Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


Date: Tue, 7 Nov 2000 13:06:27 -0800 (PST)
From: Linus Torvalds torvalds@transmeta.com
To: Kernel Mailing List linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
Subject: test11-pre1

Mostly driver updates.

With a few notable exceptions: two rather subtle MM race conditions that
happened with SMP and highmem respectively. And the FXCSR and file locking
that was already discussed on the list.
