Re: pre-2.1.90.. (fwd)
It looks like the major stumbling block facing a code freeze for Linux-2.2
has been breached. Look for a freeze within the next few days. Linus is
VERY eager to get 2.2 into a testing phase and this looks like it might be
Just a heads-up.
If NT is the answer, you didn't understand the question. (NOTE: Stolen sig)
Debian/GNU Linux ... the maintainable operating system.

Looks good here; TCP performance is up. I've only done a once-over, though,
and haven't had a chance to benchmark against pre-2.1.89 numbers.

Works fine here.
The scheduler hack seems to be a win, subjectively, but I have no timings to
back up that feeling.
Some compilation issues with 2.1.89 have been fixed, too.
Overall, this seems like a big winner.
