Subject: [PATCH 00/13] second batch of b.L switcher patches
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.ports.arm.kernel
Date: Monday 23rd September 2013 23:17:43 UTC (over 4 years ago)
The first batch of patches was posted here:

  http://news.gmane.org/group/gmane.linux.ports.arm.kernel/thread=253942

They're now merged in RMK's devel-stable branch and also available via
the linux-next tree.

So here's the second set of patches towards a fully functional and
production quality switcher solution, establishing a landmark to compare
against for any scheduler based solution meant to eventually surpass the
switcher in the mainline kernel.

Those patches are also available here:

  git://git.linaro.org/people/nico/linux
iks

This set is divided in 3 groups:

Patches 1 to 3 are needed for proper interaction and synchronization with
the cpufreq companion driver that will be posted separately.

Patches 4 to 9 are providing significant switch latency and efficiency
improvements and are purely for optimization purposes.

Patches 10 to 13 are for switch event tracing.

Here's the diffstat:
