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


Date: Sun, 17 Dec 2000 13:55:09 -0800 (PST)
From: Linus Torvalds torvalds@transmeta.com
To: Kernel Mailing List linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
Subject: test13-pre3
 
The most noticeable part of this is that the run_task_queue fix should
cure the lockup that some people have seen.
 
The shmfs cleanup should be unnoticeable except to users who use SAP with
huge shared memory segments, where Christoph Rohlands work not only
makes the code much more readable, it should also make it dependable..
