The new parallel lookup and readdir code from Al Viro just landed in -git.

This is a big deal: we've always serialized accesses to the same directory using the directory inode mutex, and while cached lookups (or lookups in different directories) scaled fine, that per-directory serialization could keep you from getting good performance on some loads.

I remember looking at some nasty samba load that +Andrew Tridgell had, where the serialized readdir caused tons of problems. That was over a decade ago. And it should finally be fixed now, although I suspect samba has lots of workarounds to just avoid the issue.

This video is great fun, especially if you play an instrument. Any instrument at all. Or if you know someone who plays an instrument, which -- hi! -- you do.

New reports show that XM can be found all over the place. XM allows you to observe the reality. The reality is that the earth consists of XM and isn't a perfect sphere. XM is what makes the world go "round".    #ingressMod
