Dear RT folks!
I'm pleased to announce the v4.6.7-rt12 patch set.
Changes since v4.6.7-rt11:
- The update to v4.6.7-rt11 introduced a performance regression
especially visible when compiling a kernel on /dev/shm. It is fixed
by invoking less often the "chill" function. Reported by Joakim
- We had a fix in v3.12.8-rt11 for ip_send_unicast_reply() which I
dropped in v3.18.8 based -RT due code change and I assumed the need
for extra serialization is no longer required. As it turns out it is
still required :)
- While looking around a similar serialisation might be required in
icmp_sk(). No crash has been observed, this is just precaution.
- CPU hotplug got a little better but can deadlock.
The delta patch against 4.6.7-rt11 is appended below and can be found here:
