John stultz <johnstul@us.ibm.com>


  • Added EARLYSUSPEND to linaro+android defconfigs
  • Made final 11.11 linaro+android release
  • After being nudged by Thomas, sent out first draft of a large patchset

reworking some of the timekeeping locking.

  • Reviewed and acked sched_clock overflow fix.
  • Helped with Android Image testing for 11.11 release
  • Submitted config fragment management script to akpm and it was

included into the -mm tree.

  • Revised madvise volatile patchset a few times preping for lkml

discussion. Got some good feedback that made me think it would be better to rework the patch to use fadvise instead of madvise. Started efforts to convert the interface over.


  • Finish madvise->fadvise conversion, do one last cleanup and send to lkml.

  • Take another pass at the timekeeping locking for Thomas.
  • Push queued patches for 3.3 to Thomas.
