[PATCH 1/4] timer: Added usleep_range timer
usleep_range is a finer precision implementations of msleep and is designed to be a drop-in replacement for udelay where a precise sleep / busy-wait is unnecessary. Since an easy interface to hrtimers could lead to an undesired proliferation of interrupts, we provide only a "range" API, forcing the caller to thi... 2 Aug 2010 19:09
[PATCH 2/4] Documentation: Add timers/timers-howto.txt

When faced with ndelay, udelay, mdelay, usleep_range, msleep, and msleep_interrubtible the question "How do I just wait 1 ms for my hardware t... 2 Aug 2010 19:09
[PATCH v3 0/4] Add usleep_range
Changes from v2: * Remove usleep API It seemed the weak consensus that the best way to force callers to consider the cost / implications of the underlying hrtimers was to leave only the range API as an option.

Hi Guys, I've updated from linux to 2.6.35. With and before I had on my box a load average of about 0.4 to 0.5. Now with the same processes / hardware I have got between 1.2 and 1.3. In top I can see nothing is going on - CPU is still about 70% idle. I am using vmware server 1.0.10 on it, the... 2 Aug 2010 18:04
