WEBINAR:

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


ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.0-test4/2.6.0-test4-mm5/

. Dropped out Con's CPU scheduler work, added Nick's. This is to help us   in evaluating the stability, efficacy and relative performance of Nick's   work.

  We're looking for feedback on the subjective behaviour and on the usual   server benchmarks please.

. Random other stuff.

Changes since 2.6.0-test4-mm4:
