Yay! Patch 46 Commentaried.

Patch 46 handles the additions we make to the /proc filesystem for administrating the local nodes, and telling the system to send processes remote. Its in reasonable shape, only requiring minor cleanup.

Things between me and what used to be my workplace have completely fallen apart, which is actually a good thing. I'm *SO* relieved, its not funny. I'm still trying to put together my next job. It seems like every time I almost get everything straightened out, they put another hurdle in front of me.

One of my users has done a semi-hackish job of porting LinuxPMI to 2.6.28.7. Now I have another 13,000 lines of kernel patch to go through. Its still early in the development process, but its nice to have a more modern kernel to go through. I'll continue trying to make the 2.6.17 branch healthy, while keeping the 2.6.28.7 branch tracking something a bit more current. I'm glad I've been getting better at this commentarying of kernel patches. Hopefully, it doesn't take me another year to go through this patch. ;)
