[PATCH] - Randomize node rotor used in cpuset_mem_spread_node()
Some workloads that create a large number of small files tend to assign too many pages to node 0 (multi-node systems). Part of the reason is that the rotor (in cpuset_mem_spread_node()) used to assign nodes starts at node 0 for newly created tasks. This patch changes the rotor to be initialized to a random node... 28 Apr 2010 09:28

[PATCH] pktcdvd: improve BKL and compat_ioctl.c usage
The pktcdvd driver uses proper locking and does not need the BKL in the ioctl and llseek functions of the character device, so kill both. Moving the compat_ioctl handling from common code into the driver itself fixes build problems when CONFIG_BLOCK is disabled. Acked-by: Randy Dunlap <randy.dunlap(a)> ... 28 Apr 2010 09:28
