Had a look at the Skipjack kernel SRPM to see what patches were incorporated in Redhat's upcoming release. O(1) scheduler, rmap and low-latency seemed to be the most interesting. It would also be nice if there was documentation in the kernel src rpm which said what each patch did
Anyway, with this combo I don't think I'm going to be using stock kernel's for a while
Fired up red-carpet to see if the RPM update was available in the Redhat 7.2 channel, it still isn't even though the errata has been out since approximately a month.
I can manually download and update the package but there seems to be no information from Ximian whether doing so would cause bad juju for RedCarpet. I know RedCarpet won't touch kernel upgrades, what other packages won't it upgrade ?
