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/…).

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.
