SubjectRE: Interesting analysis of linux kernel threading by IBM
Date
I have been trying to follow this thread but I seem to have missed the URL
or reference to the IBM analysis that is under discussion. Could someone who
has participated in this message change please repost the URL or the
reference?

Thanks,
