That initial post of mingo's ranks up there with his initial O(1) scheduler patch as a classic of patch posting. It does *everything* right (at least on a diplomatic level; this being mingo we can pretty much assume a good design as well). It puts virtally every piece of corporate presentation puffing some new thing or other to shame.

When one looks back on Ingo's contributions to kernel performance/functionality, the mind boggles. He's the Richard Feynman of kernel hacking -- he hardly reads the literature, he just thinks and codes clearly, and he even has a bit of the showman in him.
