I'm a bit behind after investigating the TCP performance issues that
turned out to be HW specific problems. It's a bit of a
dissapointment, I thought maybe there was a cool bug to fix in TCP :-)
Anyways, that means there are patches backlogged in my inbox and it is
also about time to do the hopefully last rebase of the net-2.6.24
I merged in Jeff Garzik's and John Linville's latest and I'm running
the current tree on my workstation most of today with good results so
Linus should release the final 2.6.23 very soon, let's kind of assume
it will happen over the next 3 or 4 days.
That means we need to bear down for the merge. I plan to commit my
Neptune driver in it's current state, and that's the last new feature
You can help make the merge go swimmingly by picking some nagging
issue you noticed and track it down. If you can figure out why
something happens but can't or don't have time to come up with
a fix, report what you've discovered.
If you can provide the fix too, all the better.
That's how I get backlogged, I'm working on A and notice some problem
with B, then I refuse to go back to A until I bring closure to B. :)
