Kernel NRJ 3.8.13 for ROSA 2012 2012.1 & MDV2010 2011 cooker

Post by NicCo »


Kernel 3.8.13 for ROSA MARATHON 2012, ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 (2012.1) and Mandriva 2010, MDV2011.0, OpenMandriva Cooker
Actually, Linux kernel 3.8.13 includes mostly the same changes as Linux 3.9.2 kernel...
INFO about the SRPM build possibilities and rpm availability:
For ROSA Marathon we'll build Kernels LTS: 3.0, 3.2, 3.4, and all the latest kernels up to the 3.8 series
For ROSA Fresh we are building all Kernel versions starting only from the 3.6 to the most recent series
For "Cooker" we are building all Kernel versions starting only from the 3.8 to the most recent series
For old distros Mandriva 2010 and 2011, we are maintaining build compatibility: you can also rebuild,
but we CANNOT prepare the rpms for You, as we have no chance to build with ABF or in our own PCs
Available kernel flavours are: desktop
but there should follows all other main flavours, like realtime, laptop, netbook, server

We have tested: VMWare 9.0.2, VMPlayer 5.0.2, VirtualBox 4.2.8: are OK with 3.8

Kernel 3.8.13 - Announce
http://lwn.net/Articles/550251/
All users of the 3.8 kernel series must upgrade.

Kernel 3.8.13 by MIB
This is prepared like the official one used for ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012
this version is the prepared by MIB for Mandriva and ROSA development

Since October you could find some differences and news also in this mainline serie,
the reason it that we are in full development mode for ROSA 2012.1:
from version 3.5.6 we will release two new flavours and also their 32bit pae versions
  • kernel-nrj-laptop > It's optimized for laptop PCs, with a particular attention for cpu cooling and the battery lasting
  • kernel-nrj-realtime > It's optimized to have the lowest latency and so it's better for realtime apps like jackd, ecc...

  • New path of the Kernel folders for Mandriva and ROSA
    General INFO about the new kernel paths and also about the new proprietary kernel drivers
  • Before downloading and installing any kernel 3.8.13 flavour, you need to install the Required microcode firmware!
    Microcode firmwares for cpu AMD / INTEL updates
    With the proper cpu microcode enabled you can obtain a more reliability of you system, especially indespensable in server area, so when your cpu has a defect, kernel will found the best work-around to avoid slowdowns, or dangerous oops that could harm till to freeze your OS...
  • Notice for the users of MDV 2011!
    ABF build for 2011 is broken nowdays, when and if the 2011 build side will be fixed you'll find again the rpms.
    Some problems could still occour in Mandriva 2011 by dracut remaining problems with installation and update
    these problems if / when happen are not our fault, because aren't related to the kernel contents or packaging...
    Once I succeeded to solve this ugly problem, installing the "dracut" version from RM2012 repositories into 2011

    You can also get the wished SRPM and make a local rebuild for your own old Mandriva 2010 or 2011

That's particularly very important for me.
Actually, ROSA installation on Hyper-V machines may be blocked by a bug, and this patch should fix!
I guess it is not so critical for cooker, since it may be used 3.9 kernels ( where it is fixed upstream ).

UPDATE!
New release version for kernel 3.8.13, it's the 3th release and can be considered a fix version:
this contain a few fixes related to new version of BFQ disk i/o scheduler (v6r2, dated 15 june)

Code: Select all

Budget Fair Queueing I/O Scheduler
==================================

This patchset introduces BFQ-v6r2 into Linux 3.9.0.

The overall diffstat is the following:

 8 files changed, 5916 insertions(+)

CHANGELOG

v6r2:
- Fairness fix: the case of queue expiration for budget timeout is
  now correctly handled also for sync queues, thus allowing also
  the processes corresponding to these queues to be guaranteed their
  reserved share of the disk throughput.
- Fixed a bug that prevented group weights from being correctly
  set via the sysfs interface.
- Fixed a bug that cleared a previously-set group weight if the
  same value was re-inserted via the sysfs interface.
- Fixed an EQM bug that allowed a newly-started process to skip
  its initial weight-raising period if its queue was merged before
  its first request was inserted.
- Fixed a bug that preserved already-started weight-raising periods
  even if the low_latency tunable was disabled.
- The raising_max_time tunable now shows, more user-friendly, the
  maximum raising time in milliseconds.

v6r1:
- Fix use-after-free of queues in __bfq_bfqq_expire(). It may happen that
  a call to bfq_del_bfqq_busy() puts the last reference taken on a queue
  and frees it. Subsequent accesses to that same queue would result in a
  use-after-free. Make sure that a queue that has just been deleted from
  busy is no more touched.
- Use the uninitialized_var() macro when needed. It may happen that a
  variable is initialized in a function that is called by the function
  that defined it. Use the uninitialized_var() macro in these cases.

v6:
- Replacement of the cooperating-queue merging mechanism borrowed from
  CFQ with Early Queue Merge (EQM), a unified mechanism to get a
  sequential read pattern, and hence a high throughput, with any set of
  processes performing interleaved I/O. EQM also preserves low latency.
  (see http://algo.ing.unimo.it/people/paolo/disk_sched/description.php
  for more details). Contributed by Mauro Andreolini and Arianna Avanzini.
  The code for detecting whether two queues have to be merged is a
  slightly modified version of the CFQ code for detecting whether two
  queues belong to cooperating processes and whether the service of a
  queue should be preempted to boost the throughput.
- Fix a bug that caused the peak rate of a disk to be computed as zero
  in case of multiple I/O errors. Subsequent estimations of the weight
  raising duration caused a division-by-zero error.

+ update to 3.8.12 stable - second release
- BFQ patches update to v6r1 that contain two important fixes.
- BFQ is disable on mainline kernels (nrj), as v6 caused some rare oops:
- but you can still enable it easily from kernel.spec using the command 
- create_configs-withBFQ instead of create_configs (one of 2 must be #)
- BFQ is enable on development kernels nrjQL, but now is the fixed v6r1
- ZSwap patch dropped, as it caused some rare oops...
- ZSMALLOC is now built-in on arm to workaround a build failure
