Subject2.6.18 -mm merge plans

It's time to take a look at the -mm queue for 2.6.18.

There is an unusually large amount of difficult material here. If you were
bcc'ed, please take the time to think about what we should do.

I have an Asia trip June 10-17 which will probably be during the 2.6.18
merge window. It'll take some time to get all this material sorted out in
a decent fashion so I might end up having to ask Linus to delay -rc1 by a
week or so. We'll see.


When replying to this email pleeeeeeze rewrite the Subject: to something
appropriate so we do not all go mad. Thanks.



The list:

git-hdrcleanup.patch
git-hdrinstall.patch

This is Dave Woodhouse's work cleaning up the kernel headers and adding a
`make headerinstall' target which automates the exporting of kernel
headers as a userspace-usable package.

All I can say about this is that it doesn't appear to break anything and
is ready to merge from that point of view. It's not an area in which I
have much interest or knowledge.

That being said, it's relatively costly to carry such extensive patches
in -mm for long periods, so I'd ask Linus and the distro people to work
out what we want to do here promptly, please.

git-klibc.patch

Similar. This all appears to work sufficiently well for a 2.6.18 merge.
But it's been so long since klibc was a hot topic that I've forgotten who
wanted it, and what for.

Can whoever has an interest in this work please pipe up and let's get our
direction sorted out quickly.

fix-hpet-operation-on-32-bit-nvidia-platforms-build-fix.patch
fix-hpet-operation-on-64-bit-nvidia-platforms.patch

These are bugfixes and are a marginal call for 2.6.17. But they're
playing in fragile areas, they're quite new and I fixed a bug in here just
a couple of hours ago. So I'll hold these off until 2.6.18-rc1 and will
tag them for a 2.6.17.x backport.

That's over 200 patches which need to be handled by subsystem
maintainers. I continue to have some difficulty getting this material
processed.

I'll try to make Thursdays be my unload-stuff-on-maintainers day.
Hopefully the boredom of seeing the same patches over and over will
motivate some merging, nacking and fixing.

I'm going to start sending the Areca driver to James, too. The vendor
has worked hard and the hardware is becoming more important - let's help
them get it in.

I'll henceforth include the highpoint rocketraid controller driver
(hptiop-highpoint-rocketraid-3xxx-controller-driver.patch) as well.

ug. We cannot convert the cpu.c semaphore into a mutex until we work out
why power4 goes titsup if you enable local interrupts during boot.

I just don't know. There are a number of groups who pop up with various
enhanced accounting requirements and patches (all quite different) but I
haven't heard a lot of enthusiasm from any of them over this work, which
attempts to provide an extensible framework for accumulation and querying
of per-task metrics.

But then again, we cannot just sit there and wait for everyone to be 100%
happy. So I'm 51% inclined to push this along.

Anyone else who has an interest in this sort of thing needs to be aware
that there will be an expectation that any future statistics submissions
should use these interfaces. So the time to pay attention is right now.

Christoph has half-reviewed this and all the issues arising from that
have, I believe, been addressed. With the exception of the "we should
have a generic stacking layer" issue. Which is true. Michael's take is
"yes, but that's not my job". Which also is true.

Don't know.

utsname virtualisation. This doesn't seem very pointful as a standalone
thing. That's a general problem with infrastructural work for a very
large new feature.

So probably I'll continue to babysit these patches, unless someone can
identify a decent reason why mainline needs this work.

I don't want to carry an ever-growing stream of OS-virtualisation
groundwork patches for ever and ever so if we're going to do this thing...
faster, please.

It's early days yet - needs heaps more performance testing. The results
from "Linux Portal" <linportal@gmail.com> were discouraging.

We need to do something about this. It does need an intensive review and
there aren't many people who have the experience to do that right, and
there are fewer who have the time. Uptake by a vendor or two would be
good.

Another tough one. It offers generic intrastructure for non-task-related
instrumentation and it would really be good if someone who has an interest
in this for something other than the zfcp driver could stand up and say
"this works for us".

I'm not really sure that this has as good a bugfixes/effort ratio as would,
say, working on our ever-growing bugzilla list.

But given that it exists, and that it'll fix (or rather prevent) future
bugs at a constant-but-low rate for a long time, I guess it's something we
want.

I think it's more like 2.6.19 material. The number of
teach-lockdep-about-this-unusual-but-correct-locking-code patches
continues to grow and I don't think we fully have a handle on how it'll
all end up looking.
