Announcing a resync/update of the BFS and -ck patchsets for linux-3.9
Full ck patch:
BFS only patch:
The full set of incremental patches is here:
The changes to BFS include a resync from BFS 0.428, updated to work with changes from the latest mainline kernel, and numerous CPU accounting improvements courtesy of Olivier Langlois
For those who tried the -ck1 release candidate patch I posted, this patch is unchanged. The only issue that showed up was a mostly cosmetic quirk with not being able to change the CPU accounting type, even though it appears you should be able to. BFS mandates high res IRQ accounting so there is no point trying to change it.
Lately my VPS provider (rapidxen) has been nothing short of appalling with incredible amounts of downtime, packet loss and IP changes without notification. They also repeatedly send me abuse complaints that I have to respond to for my software being (falsely) tagged as viruses. Luckily I have a move planned in the near future - including where and how - when time permits, but if you find my server doesn't respond, apologies.
EDIT: There were some fairly dramatic CPU offline code changes to mainline (YET AGAIN!) and the changes to BFS to make it work were fairly significant so there may once again be issues with power off/reboot/suspend/hibernate. It gets tiresome watching the same code being rehashed in many different ways... "because this time we'll do it right".
