[PATCH v3 05/12] Export __get_user_pages_fast.
KVM will use it to try and find a page without falling back to slow gup. That is why get_user_pages_fast() is not enough.

Memory probing fails after 2.6.30 (bisected)
Hi, Upgrading my laptop's kernel, I discovered that it reboots immediately after boot on .31 and later kernels. Grub loads it, but I cannot get one line of text out of it before it reboots, even using boot_delay. Bisecting I came up with the following: git bisect start # good: [07a2039b8eb0af4ff464efd3d... 10 Jan 2010 17:26
[PATCH] BUG: Fix smp_call_function_any to pass the node value to cpumask_of_node.
The change in acpi_cpufreq to use smp_call_function_any causes an OOPS when it is called since the function erroneously passes the cpu id to cpumask_of_node rather than the node that the cpu is on. Fix this. Signed-off-by: David John <davidjon(a)xenontk.org> diff --git a/kernel/smp.c b/kernel/smp.c index de735a... 6 Jan 2010 09:00

[RFC][PATCH v5] readahead: introduce O_RANDOM for POSIX_FADV_RANDOM
This fixes inefficient page-by-page reads on POSIX_FADV_RANDOM. POSIX_FADV_RANDOM used to set ra_pages=0, which leads to poor performance: a 16K read will be carried out in 4 _sync_ 1-page reads. In other places, ra_pages==0 means - it's ramfs/tmpfs/hugetlbfs/sysfs/configfs - some IO error happened where mult... 6 Jan 2010 08:59
