Subject: 2.6.0-test9-mjb1
Date: Thu, 30 Oct 2003 12:00:22 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <14860000.1067544022@flay> (raw)

The patchset contains mainly scalability and NUMA stuff, and anything 
else that stops things from irritating me. It's meant to be pretty stable, 
not so much a testing ground for new stuff.

I'd be very interested in feedback from anyone willing to test on any 
platform, however large or small.

Since 2.6.0-test8-mjb1 (~ = changed, + = added, - = dropped)

	Mostly a merge forwards.

Now in Linus' tree:



+ autoswap					Con Kolivas
	Auto-tune swapiness

+ ext2_fix					Andrew Morton
	Fix a race in ext2

4/4 split
new kgdb
Hyperthreaded scheduler (Ingo Molnar)
scheduler callers profiling (Anton or Bill Hartner)
Child runs first (akpm)
e1000 fixes
Update the lost timer ticks code
pidmaps_nodepages (Dave Hansen)

Present in this patch:

early_printk					Dave Hansen / Keith Mannthey
	Allow printk before console_init

confighz					Andrew Morton / Dave Hansen
	Make HZ a config option of 100 Hz or 1000 Hz

	Provide tunable parameters for the scheduler (+ NUMA scheduler)

partial_objrmap					Dave McCracken
	Object based rmap for filebacked pages.

spinlock_inlining				Andrew Morton & Martin J. Bligh
	Inline spinlocks for profiling. Made into a ugly config option by me.

	Locking stats.

sched_interactive				Ingo Molnar
	Bugfix for interactive scheduler

local_balance_exec				Martin J. Bligh
	Modify balance_exec to use node-local queues when idle

tcp_speedup					Martin J. Bligh

disable preempt					Martin J. Bligh
	I broke preempt somehow, temporarily disable it to stop accidents

ppc64 pci fix					Anton Blanchard
	Fix some ppc64 pci thing or other.

per_node_idt					Zwane Mwaikambo

percpu_real_loadavg				Dave Hansen / Martin J. Bligh

nolock						Dave McCracken
	Nah, we don't like locks.

mbind_part1					Matt Dobson
	Bind some memory for NUMA.

mbind_part2					Matt Dobson
	Bind some more memory for NUMA.

per_node_rss					Matt Dobson
	Track which nodes tasks mem is on, so sched can be sensible.

pfn_to_nid					Martin J. Bligh
	Dance around the twisted rats nest of crap in i386 include.

gfp_node_strict					Dave Hansen
	Add a node strict binding as a gfp mask option

page_lock					William Lee Irwin
	Conditionally convert mapping->page_lock back to an rwlock

irqbal_fast					Adam Litke
	Balance IRQs more readily

kcg						Adam Litke
	Acylic call graphs from the kernel. Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!

	mem= command line parameter NUMA awareness.

qlogic driver					Qlogic
	The qlogic driver
