BKL into 2.6.27!


So, Linus announced that (most?) of the bkl-removal tree has been merged to kernel for 2.6.27!!!

BKL means Big Kernel Lock, and is the system responsible for several slowdowns in Linux, including several delays in booting process. While from what I understand the first chunk of patches will not solve everthing, it’s a huge step forward! 🙂

Congratz to Linux team!
