central/kernel
 
Jerry J. [Wed, 12 Jun 2013 14:36:47 +0000]
Port the CentOS 6.4 patches to 2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.
 
Jerry J. [Tue, 11 Jun 2013 17:06:30 +0000]
Rework the name-lookup patch to avoid memory allocations.
 
Jerry J. [Wed, 5 Jun 2013 16:17:11 +0000]
This patch adds functions for finding the full name associated with a
path object without appending "//deleted" or "(deleted)" to the name if
the file has been deleted.  It also adds a function for finding absolute
pathnames associated with a dentry object.
 
The dentry_path_abs() function cannot resolve a dentry to a unique
absolute pathname in all circumstances, because a given path may be
mounted in multiple locations (due, for example, to bind mounts).
Therefore, the final parameter "n" of that function specifies one of the
possible absolute pathnames associated with the given dentry.  The
possible pathnames are ordered by time.  If a directory "foo" was first
mounted into /mnt, then later mounted into /opt, then:
 
dentry_path_abs(dentry for "foo", x, y, 0) -> "/mnt/foo"
 
dentry_path_abs(dentry for "foo", x, y, 1) -> "/opt/foo"
 
dentry_path_abs(dentry for "foo", x, y, 2) -> NULL
 
When n is larger than the total number of absolute pathnames belonging
to the dentry, then dentry_path_abs() returns NULL.

kernel 3.4: update cloakfs to v5
 
Andrea R. [Tue, 4 Jun 2013 20:16:28 +0000]

===========================
 
central/betterlinux
 
Jerry J. [Wed, 12 Jun 2013 15:27:19 +0000]
Add %posttrans line to change betterlinux-kernel* to betterlinux* on
the exclude line of /etc/yum.conf.  The former was mistakenly added
by the installer up through and including our 1.0.1-2 release.
 
 
=====================================
 
central/iothrottled
 
Andrea R. [Thu, 13 Jun 2013 17:43:21]
 
Do not lock iothrottled pages in memory.
Avoid calling mlockall() from iothrottled. It has been reported that
this may cause the invalidation of page caches pages, slowing down the
system unnecessarily.
 
Andrea R. [Tue, 11 Jun 2013 22:19:48 +0000]

Andrea R. [Mon, 3 Jun 2013 21:53:31 +0000]
check for conflicting I/O limits defined on the same devices
Be sure that any device has one or zero limits defined. If there are
multiple conflicting limits treat them as fatal errors and report a
message in the log.
