Debugging Atomicity in 2.5
Jeremy Andrews writes Robert Love, author of the kernel preemption patch, has written an informative article for KernelTrap on debugging the Linux kernel. He says, "Recently, a lot of work has gone into the 2.5 development kernel to facilitate better debugging. Starting with the 2.5.39 kernel, an infrastructure is in place for tracking down a wide range of atomicity/sleep bugs."
