Announcing a new -ck release, 4.12-ck2 with the latest version of the Multiple Queue Skiplist Scheduler, version 0.160. These are patches designed to improve system responsiveness and interactivity with specific emphasis on the desktop, but configurable for any workload.
Sorry about the delay. I skipped announcing 4.12-ck1 as there was a lingering bug report from pf (thanks for extensive report!) and a config problem in it that rendered it unbootable without extra confg options.
MuQSS 0.160 updates
- Fixed race leading to crash on use of sched_setaffinity.
4.12-ck2 updates- BFQ is now in mainline so it is no longer part of the patchset.
- BFQ now enabled by default along with scsi multiqueue to enable booting with it by default.
- Enable setting new kyber I/O scheduler as default as well (I recommend people use BFQ though.)
- Removed the mandatory swap_full() flag in the swap sucks patch after reports saying it was unhelpful.
