Marcelo Tosatti: Linux 2.4.16-pre1

Címkék

Megjelent a 2.4.16-pre1 kernel, amelyben már benne van az Al Viro féle inode patch. Enélkül a patch nélkül komoly filerendszer hibák léphetnek fel a 2.4.15 -el. Indokolt a frissítés, vagy a 2.4.15 -t foltozása.

So here it goes 2.4.16-pre1. Obviously the most important fix is the iput() one, which probably fixes the filesystem corruption problem people have been seeing. Please, people who have been experiencing the fs corruption problems test this and tell me its now working so I can release a final 2.4.16 ASAP.

- Correctly sync inodes in iput() (Alexander Viro)

- Make pagecache readahead size tunable via /proc (was in -ac tree)

- Fix PPC kernel compilation problems (Paul Mackerras)
