USB serial regression ->
Hi folks ! My USB GSM modem (Huawei 169, pretty common stuff) stopped working in the latest ubuntu karmic update. So far, I tracked it down to a regression that happened in the stable releases between and (still present in .3). I haven't tested 2.6.32-rc* yet and haven't had a chance to bisect ... 11 Oct 2009 19:21
Linux IO service time - a perfect source of randomness ?
I have just completed extensive benchmarking of ext3 on both on HW RAID6 as well as single Hard Drive. I have written a new file system benchmark that creates load by reading and writing large file trees in paralle to simulate a busy fileserver. The results are as follows: * as soon as the system com... 9 Oct 2009 13:45

[PATCH 1/8] firewire: sbp2: provide fallback if mgt_ORB_timeout is missing
The Unit_Characteristics entry of an SBP-2 unit directory is not mandatory as far as I can tell. If it is missing, we would probably fail to log in into the target because firewire-sbp2 would not wait for status after it sent the login request. The fix moves the cleanup of tgt->mgt_orb_timeout into a place where... 7 Oct 2009 19:47
x86/pvclock: add vsyscall implementation
> We can support them by falling back to the kernel. I'm a bit worried about the kernel playing with the hypervisor's version field. It's better to introduce yet a new version for the kernel, and check both. On Nehalem, apps that need timestamp information at a high frequency will likely use rdtsc/rdtscp ... 5 Nov 2009 13:23
