Subject: [ANNOUNCE] 3.8-rc1-nohz1
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel

Hi,

So after I released 3.7-nohz1, I shut down the light then sat down
in front of an empty wall in my flat and waited in the darkness with
a black tea for december 21th's apocalypse.

But then after a few days, I've been thinking I should have taken a
second cup of tea with me.

So I eventually got up and turned the light on. Then I booted my
computer and started working on that new release of the full dynticks
patchset.

Branch can found at:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/frederic/linux-dynticks.git
	3.8-rc1-nohz1

Changes since 3.7-nohz1 include:

- Many build errors fixed (thanks to Steven Rostedt, Wu Fenguang,
Li Zhong, Namhyung Kim, sorry if I'm missing somebody in the list)

- Rebase against 3.8-rc1

- Fix copy-paste that resulted in accounting utime into stime.

- Don't hold up the tick for RCU when we are in userspace

- Handle non-pinned timers

- Remove unused tick hooks

I'm certainly forgetting something...

Anyway, so on the TODO list now:

* Make sure rcu_nocbs mask matches full_nohz's.

* Get the nohz printk patchset merged.  Unfortunately Linus ignored my
pull request for the 3.8 merge window and he did not respond to Steve's
reminders about it. Let's hope we'll have more chances on the next merge
window...

* Handle update_cpu_load_active(). I had a quick look and it shouldn't
be hard to deal with. It appears that all we need to do is to catch
up with an update from target_load() and source_load().

* Handle sched_class->task_tick(). May be a bit trickier but this shouldn't
be that hard either.

* Posix cpu timers enqueued while tick is off. Probably no big deal but
I need to look into that.

* Several trivial stuffs: perf_event_task_tick(), profile_tick(),
sched_clock_tick(), etc...

About mainlining stuff, I'll likely work on getting the nohz cputime
accounting patches into a better shape and try to get these merged for
the next merge window.

There are a few comments I haven't responded on the last release, I'm
not ignoring them. Of course I plan to answer you but for now I'm just
a bit backlogged due to holidays.

Happy new year!
