- Linus has merged a bunch of things. Of which O_DIRECT support for ext3
is the only interesting part.
- mm3 was a temp syncup with wli. mm4 has survived an overnight deathtest
and looks pretty good.
+ the block-highmem scsi fix has been changed: we now allow block-highmem
for all scsi devices, not just disks.
+ added a patch to move the rmap locking functions into their own
+ highpte is now working.
There is no evidence that non-ia32 people have tried to compile this
+ a race in slablru has been fixed. slablru seems to keep the slabs
under control quite nicely.
+ added rml's low-latency-zap_page_range patch
+ reinstated buffermem acounting in /proc/meminfo. This is useful,
but the implementation's walk across the inode_unused list will
probably be very costly in some situations. May need to change it so
that the inode walk only works correctly for blockdevs, or make
the inode_unused list (and inode_lock!) per-superblock.
+ The configurable kernel/userspace split patch is back.
+ Added Rohit's ia32 huge tlb page patch. We don't have any tools
to test this with at present, which is a bit of a problem.
+ Added Jani Monoses' EXT3_SB cleanup.
