A late Tuesday slashdot posting at:
leads into Linus' patch philosophy on lkml at
but the interesting thing is that this thread is keyed off of an LKCD
discussion. As CGL is very concerned with kernel dumping,an interesting
A key thing to take from this is the idea from Linus that seeing
discussion of USE of kernel dumps to solve real problems on lkml would
be a way to convince him such a feature belongs in the base. In
addition, to quote from Linus' email:
-If it doesn't have to happen in my tree, then whose tree _does_ it
to happen in?
Doesn't much matter, actually. You can keep it in your tree, for all
care. OSDL has already picked it up and apparently maintains it in
their tree. The only thing that matters is whether it gets used or
and whether it proves itself.
