Functionally-Overloaded Linux Kernel

SGI's Projects

SGI has contributed many patches for the Linux kernel, only some of which have made it into the FOLK patch series. So far. These patches are as follows:

  • POSIX Asynchronous I/O Support
    Verision in FOLK: 1.3.1-2.4.2
    A high-performance I/O system which reads/writes asynchronously to ensure optimal contiguous throughput.
  • Post/Wait Support
    Version in FOLK: 0.2-2.4.0
    "Post/Wait is an efficient, fast, lightweight sleep/wakeup/timer mechanism used between a cooperating group of processes."
  • Scheduled Transfer Protocol
    Version in FOLK: 0.33a-2.4.1
    "The Scheduled Transfer Protocol (STP) is an ANSI specified connection-oriented data transfer protocol."
  • XFS
    Version in FOLK: CVS snapshot 08/01/2001
    An advanced 64-bit journalling filesystem (with access control lists.)
