Subject: [ANNOUNCE] 3.8-rc6-nohz4
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 6th February 2013 18:28:58 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Hi,

The support for printk and cputime accounting to work on full dynticks CPUs
have
been merged in -tip tree and is likely deemed for the 3.9 merge window. So
this
new release is a rebase against the relevant branches in -tip and v3.8-rc6.

The remaining amount of patches has thus quite schrinked.

You can pull this branch from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/frederic/linux-dynticks.git
	3.8-rc6-nohz4

Remember it doesn't yet support everything the tick does, namely it lacks
full support for:

- Posix CPU timers
- Perf events
- sched_class::task_tick()
- various other scheduler details
- ...

So use it with caution!

Thanks.

PS: next upstream focus will probably be on posix cpu timers. May be we can
try to
make it work using timer_list or hrtimers, I don't know yet. I need to
experiment.

Changes since 3.8-rc4-nohz3 (including those of cputime):

* Rebase against v3.8-rc6 and latest tip:/sched/core and tip:/irq/core

* Fix cputime build error with kvm modules (Thanks Sedat Dilek and
Wu Fenguang)

* Fix cputime mistyped header inclusion in ia64

* Fix more missing symbols for kvm

* Removal of profiling's timer hook also applied in -tip
