It’s nice to see people based in Canberra (and who regularly come to the local LUG) featured on sites like this. The interview is also an interesting read.
Rusty mentions a paper on futexes, which I will one day get around to reading…
Also, he mentions: I wrote the Unreliable Guide To Kernel Hacking and the Unreliable Guide to Kernel Locking (which require updating for 2.6) which sit in the kernel sources under Documentation/DocBook/ — which sounds like an interesting task for someone.
I’m pushing a deadline at work, we’re nearing the 5.2 release of the product, and I’ve been burning the midnight oil a little to get a nice feature ready in time for it to get into the product, having been QA’ed properly. I think I’m nearly ready now though. I think I’ll need to have Friday off to see this year’s Floriade though.
