do a 'permission' RPC call when the server is in *any* case going to tell you whether or not this operations is allowed. Why do a 'lookup()' when the 'create()' call can be made to tell you whether or not a file already exists).
I'd very much like for something like Peter Braam's 'lookup with intent' or (better yet) for a proper dentry->open() to be integrated with path_walk()/open_namei(). I'm still working on the latter (Peter has already completed the lookup with intent stuff).
(All this is in progress, see http://www.fys.uio.no/~trondmy/src)
switching technology that works by switching based upon fixed length labels prepended to packets. Many people use this and IPSEC to implement VPNs over public networks, it is also used for things like traffic engineering.
The way IP fragmentation is specified, each fragment must be modulo 8 bytes in length. So suppose the device has an MTU that is not 0 modulo 8, ethernet even classifies in this way. 1500 == (8 * 187) + 4

grover: The problem is the ACPI irq routing code is trying to piggyback on the existing MPS-specific data structures, and it's generally a hack. So yes mochel is right, but it is also purging MPS-ities from common code as well. I've done some preliminary work in this area and it doesn't seem to break anything (yet) but a rewrite in this area imho should not be rushed out the door. And, I think the above bugs can be fixed w/o the rewrite.
rmk: need to complete ALSA-ification of the WaveArtist driver for both
SMM mode mess up our toggle on the time high/low or mangle the counter and one where a few chips need religious use of _p for timer access and we don't do that. This is forward porting little bits of fixup.
