In message <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, Matthew Dillon wri tes: >:Because the critical_* changes you are doing don't match up to the overall >:design. See my mail to -arch for more on that though. At some point in the >:future I think that this work can fit in rather well to the cpu_critical_foo >:stuff (which can be split out from critical_enter/exit now). However, at this >:stage I would rather avoid complex optimizations of APIs that may change in the >:future.

Matt, That particular protest is rather hollow, considering that you were one of the first people to not show up for the SMPng work whereas John has been consistently chugging along on the job all the way. At this point in time, until he is officially unseated John is our designated SMPng architect and his word is pretty final. -- Poul-Henning Kamp | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20 [EMAIL PROTECTED] | TCP/IP since RFC 956 FreeBSD committer | BSD since 4.3-tahoe Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
