I'm curious if anyone here has tried the preemption patches on XFS
system, running SMP? My question is if you have any subjective
comparison of how the system feels/works both with and without IO-APIC
enabled? I ask since I'm forced to run noapic on an i840 chipset. noapic
can have a number of subjective changes all by itself, one of which is
lower responsiveness. If an XFS kernel works well on SMP machines
running noapic, this might be useful for me.
