Kernel Traffic #135

Author: JT Smith

Zack Brown posts the latest edition of the linux-kernel mailing list summary. The most-discussed subject on the list surrounded issues and performance testing of the 2.4 kernel virtual memory subsystem. Not surprisingly, then, the second-most popular conversation also revolved around that subsystem, with Linus announcing that he would incorporate Andrea Arcangeli's VM changes to introduce better memory performance. Finally, list members weigh in with their experiences with the kernel pre-emption patch. All this and more, hot off the presses at kt.zork.net.
