Linux 2 6 10


  • Released December 24, 2004 changelog

  • Accounting: report single record for multithreaded process. In kernels before 2.6.10, a separate process accounting record was written for each thread created using NTPL. Since 2.6.10, a single accounting record is written for the entire process (commit)

  • x86-64 clustered APIC support (commit)

  • Make rlimit settings per-process instead of per-thread for POSIX compliance (commit)

  • POSIX compliant CPU clocks (commit)

  • Show aggregate per-process counters in /proc/$PID/stat: Add up resource usage counters for live and dead threads to show aggregate per-process usage. This mirrors the new getrusage() semantics. /proc/$PID/task/$TID/stat still has the per-thread usage (commit)

  • Report the pages used for pagetables in /proc/$PID/status (commit)

  • Display committed memory limit (per the current overcommit ratio) and the amount of memory remaining under this limit in meminfo (commit)

  • Thrashing control tuning (commit)

  • Big Kernel Lock preemption

  • IRQ subsystem code rework (commit)

  • Removal of the "BIO walking" helper functions

  • Generic circular buffer type (LWN article) (commit)

  • Ext3 block reservation (LWN article) (commit)

  • Ext3 online resizing patches (LWN article) (commit)

  • Add I/O error handling to journal operations in reiserfs (commit)

  • I/O space write barriers (LWN article) (commit)

  • Modular, on-the-fly switchable I/O schedulers (LWN article) (commit)

  • CFQ v2 update (commit)

  • BSD secure levels module (commit)

  • In-kernel cryptographic key management (commit)

  • DVD+RW support (commit)

  • CDRW packet writing support (commit)

  • kernel events notification mechanism

  • Lock initializater unification (commit)

  • Panick blinking: Makes the keyboard blink when a oops happens - useful to know if the kernel has really oopsed or not (ej: X.org bugs) (commit)
