DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2003-09
Re: namecache stage-2 patch for testing
::Testing of NAMEI2.DIFF with compares of without.
::All of the testing without used kernel as of Sep 24.
::The testing was performed in this order on both occasions.
: oops. don't bother doing any performance comparisons, I blew
: it somewhere. My buildworld is geting slower and slower and sloowwwer
: I'll take this up tomorrow and produce a new patch.
Update: I am almost ready with another version of the patch, one that
hopefully fixes the degenerate case that caused the slowdown. I have
also tracked down a bug in the slab allocator that could lead to memory
corruption and a panics (typically a dirty page on clean or cache
list VM panic), which I will commit today (not quite yet).
I also (whew!) am testing a patch that fixes the MP lock panic that
people have been reporting on SMP boxes.
I am going to sit on this stuff until I can successfully complete a
buildworld or two or three on my SMP box before I commit the slab fix
and post the new namecache patch, but it will definitely happen today
