|Subject:||XFS status update for December 2011|
|Date:||Thu, 12 Jan 2012 14:02:21 -0500|
December saw further stabilization of the Linux 3.2 release candidates. For XFS that meant two important fixes for sync() data integrity, to work around issues introduced in the VFS sync code in the past few kernel releases. These fixes have also been backported to the 3.0-stable release. Development for the next merge windows continue in fast pace, although only a relatively small amount of patches was merged into the development tree for the Linux 3.3 window. The most interesting topic in December probably was further development of the SEEK_DATA / SEEK_HOLE support, including defining the exact semantics in presence of unwritten extents and proper test coverage. On the user space side December was fairly quite, with about a handful fixes commit to xfsprogs, two new test cases and a couple of fixes in xfstests, and no activity in xfsdump. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a message to firstname.lastname@example.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html Please read the FAQ at http://www.tux.org/lkml/
