Meanwhile active development aimed at 2.6.35 merge progressed. The
major feature for this window is the merge of the delayed logging code,
which adds a new logging mode that dramatically reduces the bandwidth
required for log I/O. See the documentation  for details. Testers
for this new code are welcome.
As of today I'm running 2.6.35-rc3 with XFS and delayed logging on a 4GB
software raid0 we use to do nightly builds of about 150 software packages
(kernel, samba, etc) on Slackware 10.1.
If there's anything specific I can do, please let me know. I have some more
hardware around to test with.
By the way: thanks for these monthly status updates: they're really useful!
