Date: Thu, 7 Feb 2008 18:13:22 -0800 (PST)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

are available in the git repository at:

  git:// slub-linus

(includes the cmpxchg_local fastpath since the cmpxchg_local work
by Matheiu is in now, and the non atomic unlock by Nick. Verified that

Christoph Lameter (4):
      SLUB: Deal with annoying gcc warning on kfree()
      SLUB: Use unique end pointer for each slab page.
      SLUB: Alternate fast paths using cmpxchg_local
      SLUB: Support for performance statistics

Ingo Molnar (1):
      SLUB: fix checkpatch warnings

Nick Piggin (1):
      Use non atomic unlock
