i'm curious if it'll benefit hard-disks much on simple numa (2 node) architectures. i imagine the latency reduction will have at least minor benefit.
Just a small pointer, not sure the forum's where to do it, but whatever - there's a minor typo in this news post:
and ctually yields simpler driver development.
This will reduce compile time, right?
Fedora 18, 19, and 20 (prerelease) are all already on 3.11, the next round of kernel updates (probably happen this coming week) will probably bring on 3.12. Note that F17 got all the way up to 3.10 before its support was dropped, which is the same version 18 and 19 were running at the same time.
Generally, their policy is to keep the kernel up at the latest stable version for Fedora "stable" or "close to stable", and at the latest BLEEDING version for unstable/WTF (i.e., F21 is riding 3.12 prerelease.)
