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.
