Tun­ing guide in the wiki

In the light of the recent bench­mark dis­cus­sion, a vol­un­teer import­ed the tun­ing man-page into the wiki. Some com­ments at some places for pos­si­ble improve­ments are already made. Please go over there, have a look, and par­tic­i­pate please (testing/verification/discussion/improvements/…).

As always, feel free to reg­is­ter with First­name­Last­name and tell a FreeB­SD com­mit­ter to add you to the con­trib­u­tors group for write access (you also get the ben­e­fit to be able to reg­is­ter for an email noti­fi­ca­tion for spe­cif­ic pages).

Some fix­es for the lin­ux­o­la­tor after test­ing by users

After the call for pub­lic test­ing we got some reports about LORs and a pan­ic. This hap­pened after an exten­sive par­al­lel com­pil­ing ses­sion of lin­ux stuff on a SMP sys­tem for sev­er­al hours. Roman redid some of the lock­ing and the fix­es are in the tree. Inter­me­di­ate patch­es already showed promis­ing results. We’re wait­ing for the test of the com­mit­ted solu­tion now.

Yes­ter­day we also got reports about seg­faults with lin­ux Java 5 and 6. This is under inves­ti­ga­tion (any debug­ging help would be appre­ci­at­ed, Java is a large beast).

I also noticed that we don’t have the results of a LTP run of a native Lin­ux sys­tem in the wiki. It would be very nice to have this, as it would allow us to see bro­ken test cas­es (Roman thinks the ope­nat tests are flawed) or at least we see where it does­n’t mat­ter much that we don’t PASS.
