Patch 48 of 2.6.17's tree commentaried.
This patch has some code wrapping the socket layer, to make our code in hpc/ simpler, along with a function wrapping daemonize, and setting our scheduler settings. the scheduler wrapping function includes a 'high priority' mode we don't use, that I'll be pulling.
I've started work on polishing the patches for the 188.8.131.52 tree, which showed me an ugly case where we're abusing macros to implement something the kernel already has a function for, and we implement it wrong. I'm not sure whether we should pull our implementation and use the kernel's, or what. Code Archeology on this level is Not Fun.
In my day-to-day life, nothing much is happening. *still* no word from my prospective employers. Just getting poorer. I still don't regret things between me and my last workplace breaking down, however. I'm just not comfortable in a workplace that patently dishonest.
