The BFS 0.372 test patch has proved quite a success.There have been no regressions in performance, with slight improvements even with the performance CPU governor, and better latency all round on SMP now. There were some rare crashes that I had to track down and I believe I've fixed them all so I'm releasing another test patch, 0.373, which has addressed them and is otherwise the same as 0.372.
Apply to a 0.363 patched kernel:
Thanks to those who have tested and reported back so far!

I am planning on posting latency benchmarks soon too.
