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


ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.8.1/2.6.8.1-mm1

  • perfctr is ready to be merged up, but there are concerns that it duplicates perfmon capabilities, and that perfmon may be a better base from which to start. Am waiting for the dust to settle on that front.
  • The packet-writing patches should be ready to go, but I haven't even looked at them yet, and am not sure that anyone else has reviewed the code.
  • Added the kprobes facility.

    Generally we prefer to not merge infrastructure into the kernel unless it has in-kernel users. kprobes is exceptional, in that its applications are all custom-written to solve a particular problem.

    One problem we face with kprobes is that there is no easy way in which it can receive runtime (or regression) testing.

    This patchset does include an application (a network packet tracer) but it's not obvious that we should retain that in the kernel.

  • This kernel probably still has the ia64 scheduler startup bug, although it works For Me.
  • If people have significant patches in here, please regression test them to make sure everything landed OK, thanks.
