Some up­dates (kernel/​ports)

There was not much to tell in the last months. I was busy with mov­ing and the preg­nancy of my wife (ok, she was more busy with this than I was…).

So the re­cent up­dates are, that I took some time to com­mit some of my patches to SVN. Most of them are in my SVN user area in vari­ous branches. The in­ter­est­ing ones may be deskjail and linuxaio. The first one al­lows to run your desktop in a jail. The second one gives async I/​O for the linuxu­lat­or.

There’s also some oth­er stuff. Feel free to have a look.

It also seems that the we may see the Fe­dora 8 in­fra­struc­ture land­ing in the ports col­lec­tion “soon”. I have the im­pres­sion that Bor­is just waits for the com­plete un­freeze of the ports col­lec­tion. The last patch I’ve re­viewed looked very good. There are some loose ends, like switch­ing it on as the de­fault linux base for FreeBSD-cur­rent for ex­ample, but those are things which I prefer to do later than in the same com­mit. First let it be there for a while and let curi­ous users test it a little bit more. If everything is ok, we can switch the de­fault linux base to F8 in -cur­rent.
