My super hack of the day proved to be futile :-p

I was trying to see if I can pass a host file descriptor up to the guest via the virtio (which is connected to a host socket). I didn't think it would work, but I had to try it anyway. Hoping that qemu would pass the necessary information to the guest. It was fun trying it, but looks like I'll have to use a proxy instead.

It's just another OS which just happen to be on top of the host

Weird, someone tried to add Chinese subtitles to one of my talks.

+Jim Huang, your effort to broaden the audience for kernel related educational videos in Taiwan have been noticed! ;)

That might slow down the development of Subsurface!

Rename trace-cmd!

OK, I'm thinking of renaming the tool trace-cmd. I never liked the name to begin with, it was created as a prototype but then caught on, and I always hated that name.

One of the top names that I can think of is:

ktrout - Kernel TRacing OUTput utility.

But I'm open for suggestions of other names. I was thinking of doing the rename when I do my next major release that will include virtual machine client agents that will allow the host to kick off tracing inside the kernel.

What's your thoughts?

+Måns Rullgård what do you think the 'f' in ftrace stood for to begin with.

+Namhyung Kim note, ftrace is really the function tracing utility. I rather have a generic tracing name. lktrace may not be bad, or if people don't mind typing, kerneltrace. Or maybe kshark? (like wireshark and tshark).

I don't post my birthday to keep those that don't really know me from posting happy birthday messages ;-)

How can it be that Google doesn't have a doodle for this date???
 
Today in 1912, mathematician and scientist, Alan Turing, was born. He was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, providing a formalization of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model for the general purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence. Happy 104th birthday, Alan Turing!

Sure, but I think he has enough meaning that they should do something on all his birthdays.
