Linux 2.6.23 is here - LDom support, in like Flint

Earlier this week the latest Linux kernel, 2.6.23 made its debut.  As I mentioned this summer, thanks to the efforts of David Miller and Fabio, support for Logical Domains (LDoms) on the SPARC architecture is included in Linux's latest and greatest .  (LDoms are Sun's core virtualization solution for SPARC-based systems.)

If you want to check out what LDom stuff was specifically added, check out the kernelnewbies.org site and scroll down to "SPARC64" under section 3.6 "Architecture-specific changes. " 

I found this site today by following links and it's pretty cool.  Besides giving the details of what exactly was added to the kernel, among other things it offers up a glossary, an FAQ and links to a cool article called "Who wrote what."  In the article, David Miller scored highly on all the charts and in fact, when it came to "Developers with the most sign offs," he was surpassed only by Andrew Morton and Linus.  Very glad to have David's help!

Pau for now...

BTW:  The reference in the title is to this

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
