Andrew Morton: Linux 2.6.4-rc1-mm1

(Other stories by Andrew Morton)

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.4-rc1/2.6.4-rc1-mm1/

  • Added the POSIX message queue implementation. We're still stitching together a decent description of all of this. Reference information is at

    http://www.mat.uni.torun.pl/~wrona/posix_ipc/ and

    http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007904975/basedefs/mqueue.h.html

  • A fair amount of work against the page reclaim code. Mainly reorganisation and simplification of various little glitches. This means that a few of the optimisations which were in 2.6.3-mm4 were broken and were dropped. But this is a better basis upon which to reintroduce them.

    Performance, however, seems similar to 2.6.3-mm4 in a few tests. Inter-zone balancing is much better than 2.6.3 but still could be improved a little.

    Slab reclaim balancing is improved, however with some (artificial) workloads slab is still being a problem because of tremendous internal fragmentation problems: 6% occupancy of the pages which are allocated to dcache, for example. More work is needed to account for this.

    I tested the swapout code with 7.2G of tmpfs pagecache on a 7G machine. The rotate_reclaimable_page() logic seems to work fine here - only 200M of memory was added to swapcache and was swapped out.

  • Plus the usual various little fixes and cleanups.
  • The contents of the broken-out/ directory are now available in the 2.6.4-rc1-mm1-broken-out.tar.gz file. This includes the `series' file which describes the patching order.

    People who are using patch-scripts can recreate the patching machinery by doing:

          cd /usr/src/linux
          tar xfz ~/2.6.4-rc1-mm1-broken-out.tar.gz
          mv broken-out/*.patch patches
          mv broken-out/series .
          for i in $(cat-series series)
          do
                  pcpatch $i
          done
          rmdir broken-out
    

Changes since 2.6.3-mm4:

linus.patch
bk-acpi.patch
bk-alsa.patch
bk-arm.patch
bk-driver-core.patch
bk-ieee1394.patch
bk-netdev.patch
bk-scsi.patch
bk-usb.patch
 Latest versions of various external trees. bk-i2c.patch was dropped pending it getting its lmsensors act together. And bk-input was dropped because it was old and nobody will tell me the input project's bk URL.
