More File-System Tests Of The Linux 3.18 Kernel

Earlier this week on Phoronix I posted benchmarks indicating potential block/file-system performance regressions using the Linux 3.18 kernel. Since then I've been carrying out more tests looking for any file-system performance problems on other hardware.

Btrfs RAID Support For RAID 5/6 Is Improving

Of the RAID 0/1/5/6/1+0 levels supported natively by the Btrfs file-system, it's been the RAID 5 and RAID 6 implementations that have been deemed experimental and not yet production ready. Fortunately, that may soon be changing with some fresh Btrfs tool patches.

Fujitsu Developer Talks Up Btrfs File-System, Declares It Ready To Use

Besides Oracle, Facebook, and SUSE, another major company that's been investing in the Btrfs next-generation Linux file-system has been Fujitsu. Btrfs already offers some compelling, ZFS-like features not found in other native Linux file-systems while more work is still happening.

New Kernel Live Patching Combines kGraft & Kpatch

Back in February SUSE unveiled a new means of live Linux kernel patching, kGraft, compared to the existing Ksplice. One month later, Red Hat unveiled their own solution that happened to be under development at the same time, Kpatch. Since both of them have been out, both have pursued mainline interests but neither one accepted upstream yet. Now a new live kernel patching solution is out that tries to take the best of both worlds.

Features Of The Linux 3.18 Kernel

With Linux 3.18-rc1 arriving one week early I didn't have a chance to write a feature overview of Linux 3.18 prior to this first development release that marked the close of the merge window. For those that didn't stay up to date with our dozens of Linux 3.18 kernel articles about changes and new features, here's a concise overview.

Linux Kernel Working Towards GNU11/C11 Compatibility

For now it looks like the Linux kernel is going to explicitly declare itself as using the GNU89 dialect of the C89 standard but over time the code is being made to compile under C11.
