Kernel LTS 3.10.40 for ROSA Marathon 2012 (rosa2012lts) and ROSA Fresh R2 (rosa2012.1)

Kernel 3.10.40 - LTS Edition
http://lwn.net/Articles/598455/

What is changing with the new release (apart of the mainstream fixes and changes)
Since 3.10.40 version we use the new stable major version of BFQ v7r4 (enabled as default)

read more about previous BFQv7r3: a link with a graph of last tests (r4 graphs not available)
http://algo.ing.unimo.it/people/paolo/d ... esults.php

Paolo Valente and Arianna Avanzini, have just now sent us the new I/O scheduler BFQ v7R4
into an mail attachment: as I requested giving the priority to kernels 3.13, 3.10, 3.12, then 3.0

This is an absolute preview! - Infact currently these patches have NOT still been published...

In this way I can prepare ASAP the new release of kernel 3.13.11 for OpenMandriva Lx 2014:
It should fix a rare issue that may happen with NCQ HDD devices, when these are detected
as NOT NCQ capable, all that may lead tonoticeable slowdowns and so many nasty oops...

The issue happened rarely, it was reported by few liquorix kernel users
to be reproduced and verified it occurred to be injected, now it's fixed...

After verifying that all is OK in my PCs, and all is working well for the Kernel 3.13.11-2,
I'll apply the same release patches into the kernel 3.10.40for ROSA Fresh R3, and son on for all our supported kernels!
