|| ||[Acl-Devel] Version 0.8.50 of the kernel patches released|
|| ||Wed, 4 Sep 2002 18:24:12 +0200 (CEST)|
I have just released version 0.8.50 of the kernel patches. At the moment,
only the 2.4.19 kernel is supported. The most obvious change: The changes
are also available as many separate patches. A number of SMP bugs have
been found in the meta block cache, so extended attributue block sharing
should now work (at least more) reliably on SMP systems. The bugs are
pretty hard to trigger, so chances are you are affected but never ran into
From the kernel change log:
2002-09-04 Andreas Grünbacher <firstname.lastname@example.org>
* Release of version 0.8.50.
* Mount parameters have been changed from attr=... to
[no]acl and [no]user_xattr to be in line with existing
mount parameters, and to not confuse mount(1).
* Add syscall definitions for additional architectures
(alpha, m68k, mips, mips64, ppc64, s390x).
* Add the noacl nfs mount parameter to allow disabling the
ACCESS RPC for performance.
* Add the ACCESS RPC patch from Trond Myklebust for proper
access checking with ACLs. This causes slowdowns for some
NFS client setups.
* The nfs_permission_mode nfs server parameter now defaults
to NFS_FILE_MODE_PERMISSION_BITS_UNCHANGED (and so leaves
* Fix several SMP bugs in the meta block cache. Extended
attribute sharing should now work more reliably on SMP
* Split up the ea and acl patches into many small patches.
RECOMMENDATION TO UPGRADE
Please upgrade to 0.8.50 on all SMP systems. There is no need to
upgrade if extended attribute block sharing is disabled.
