    Phoronix: AMD Aims To Squeeze More EPYC Performance Out Of Linux With User-Space Hinting For Tasks

    This would be great to tie in further with programming languages that have data parallelism, such as Rayon for Rust where it works great until you have to start juggling NUMA nodes and other fun stuff, so this sort of work would be awesome as other programs could start being smarter about the scheduler.

    This sort of thing is really good to see AMD realising that to another step to outcompete Intel when you have hundreds (!!) of cores is that you now need to schedule properly.
