This is a fascinating writeup, and so clear even I can understand it. It's now my second-favourite account of "how we delved the technical depths of a nasty problem" after the one at http://www.justpasha.org/folk/rm.html (though there the delving is done while fixing the problem, and here the delving is done while understanding it).

Nicely done, Jon; thanks.

This is a big reason why I subscribe LWN.net. I'm more of a graphics and «user» person, and not so much a developer (although I'm thoroughly fascinated by it).

With Jonathan Corbet's extremely nice, easy to follow and oh-so-nice-and-technical articles I'm always getting a better understanding of computer tech and how the Linux kernel work. It's very interesting.
