I committed most of Romans work in the linuxolator to current. The new syscalls aren’t used until you run
to switch back (after exiting all linux programs) you just have to run
But you have to do this on i386. Amd64 support is not complete (and besides this, amd64 is still broken and nobody provided the neccessary debugging info to jhb@).
There are some known problems with osrelease=2.6.16, e.g., problems with futexes (visible in acroread, realplay and skype), but some programs already run without obvious problems (linux-firefox, linux-opera).
Any reports about new problems to netchild@ and rdivacky@ please. Reviews, debugging info and patches are welcome too.
