* [PATCH] Tweak idle thread setup semanticsIngo Molnar2005-06-281-0/+7
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch tweaks idle thread setup semantics a bit: instead of setting NEED_RESCHED in init_idle(), we do an explicit schedule() before calling into cpu_idle(). This patch, while having no negative side-effects, enables wider use of cond_resched()s. (which might happen in the stock kernel too, but it's particulary important for voluntary-preempt) Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
* [PATCH] node local per-cpu-pagesChristoph Lameter2005-06-211-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch modifies the way pagesets in struct zone are managed. Each zone has a per-cpu array of pagesets. So any particular CPU has some memory in each zone structure which belongs to itself. Even if that CPU is not local to that zone. So the patch relocates the pagesets for each cpu to the node that is nearest to the cpu instead of allocating the pagesets in the (possibly remote) target zone. This means that the operations to manage pages on remote zone can be done with information available locally. We play a macro trick so that non-NUMA pmachines avoid the additional pointer chase on the page allocator fastpath.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
