"Linux Kernel 3.2 was officially released last week, on January
4th, bringing features like better support for large files by
supporting block sizes bigger than 4KB and up to 1MB in EXT4, upper
limits of CPU time can now be set in the process scheduler, lots of
Btrfs improvements, thin provisioning and recursive snapshots in
the Device Mapper.
"Moreover, I/O-less dirty throttling to reduce filesystem
writeback from page reclaim, as well as improved live profiling
tool "perf top", cross memory attach, process bandwidth controller,
support for the Hexagon architecture, and TCP proportional rate
reduction were also implemented in Linux kernel 3.2."
