  • Ripped out the remaining sysent entries that indexed into sys_call_table. Cleaning up a codebase from ground up is soo much fun 8)


  • Today I became official sysvfs Maintainer. Let's see wether that is fun as well.
  • Gave an interview on OpenGFS - I'm getting famous *g


  • I'm feeling pretty bad, looks like I caught an influenza. There's only one thing that helps now: drinking.

    Thus I'm leaving for a party now..

Linux-ABI is done. Mostly mmap fixes and more cleanups.

More OpenGFS hacking - harness actually looks like Linux kernelcode now. Pool still needs work..

Worked on two fronts today:

  • Linux-ABI:
    - pushed truckloads of changes to Linus, I'm really tired of maintaining the huge core deltas
    - claimed the personality maintainership :)
  • OpenGFS:
    - more pool hacking
    - trying to get rid of more core kernel invasions, duh

Some more hacking on pool, the OpenGFS volume manager. The old Sistina code sucks so badly that I will probably do a rewrite for OpenGFS 0.2 - but for now the old has to be made working again..

Nothing special today. Some OpenGFS hacking and hanging around in a phonecall..
