Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Linux 3.2 includes support for Hexagon CPUs, enhancements to
the TCP stack, an upbeat SHA1 implementation and dozens of new and
revised drivers. And Linux now has a Google+ page.
Among the features added by kernel developers is support for the
architecture of Qualcom's Hexagon processors. The TCP stack in
Linux 3.2 will contain the "proportional rate reduction" algorithm,
which has been added by a Google developer and which should enable
network connections to be restored faster following temporary data
transfer problems. This should speed up data transfer.
