BenCGood morning everyone13:25
ckingMorning BenC13:25
amitk_BenC: any reason we might _not_ upload a new kernel today?13:42
BenCamitk_: none that I know of13:43
sorenWhen do you intend to freeze?13:43
rtgamitk_: gotta finish fixing this DMI IO_DELAY patch for xen before uploading.13:44
tjaaltonBenC: is the abi going to change? I've got some packaging fixes for lrm pending13:44
rtgtjaalton: the ABI is -1313:45
tjaaltonrtg: right, but there won't be a -14 ?-)13:45
BenCtjaalton: we will need a new lrm uploaded13:45
rtgtjaalton: sorry, misunderstood. No, the ABI should remain at 1313:45
amitk_rtg: no worries. I was just asking to make sure I don't have to do a separate upload for mobile.13:46
tjaaltonBenC: yeah, that's why I'm asking :)13:46
rtgzul: you around?14:03
zulrtg: perhaps yes :)14:03
rtgzul: I'm adding some definitions to include/asm-x86/mach-xen/asm/io_32.h and io_64.h. Whats the best way to do that? Its for the IO_DELAY patch.14:04
zulcreate a patch for it and add it to the list14:05
zulor you could send it to me and I could do it for you14:05
rtgzul: ok, gimme a bit to get it prepared.14:06
zuljust ping me when you are ready14:06
rtgzul: I committed to the main Hardy repo. I think xen is the only flavour that does not build. It fails early on with kernel/sysctl.c14:09
rtgtjaalton: if you are going to upload lrm, how about updating madwifi to 0.9.4 first?14:27
tjaaltonrtg: sure14:44
rtgtjaalton: thanks14:45
tjaaltonthat'll probably fix bug 182489 too14:46
ubotuLaunchpad bug 182489 in linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24 "Atheros wireless (AR5006EG) not working on ASUS Eee PC" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/18248914:46
rtgtjaalton: I couldn't tell if the update enables some of the newer Atheros chipsets. 14:48
tjaaltonoh right14:49
BenCI think to fix the cpufreq loss on cpu1 for suspend/resume, I may just pull 2.6.25 for the next upload15:40
BenCprobably will be an ABI change15:40
rtgcking: he's kidding.15:41
BenCyou hope :)15:41
ckingOpps: typos galore15:41
ckingBenC: 2.6.25 may also fix some of the scheduling interrupts issues.15:41
ckingBenC: April fool'd me?15:42
* BenC 1, cking 015:43
cking...well done. 15:43
cking...I am v. gullible.15:43
BenCdon't feel bad, I fooled my kids into thinking the school's power was out, and they could stay home today15:45
rtgBenC: oh, how cruel!15:45
smbBenC: cruel was word I was missing .:)15:45
sorenHm.. I'm considering syncing our virtio stuff with what's currently in 2.6.25. The trouble is that there's no way to merge cleanly with linus, because what we have now came from a different VCS, got changed, and was then imported into linus's tree, so what we have does not correspond to anything that was ever in another git tree. How would you handle this?15:50
soren(please ignore the question of "why" for now)15:50
BenCsoren: one big patch with a thorough list of changes in the commit log15:51
sorenI'm considering reverting all teh commits that brought us to where we are now and then cherry-picking from linus, but that looks butt ugly in the logs15:51
sorenBenC: Oh, really?15:51
sorenOk, that actually sounds somewhat manageable.15:52
BenCpost-hardy, we'll basically ditch all of those commits15:52
sorenThe changes aren't really very big, but the amount of commits rewinding and the fast-forwarding again made it look *huge*.15:52
BenCSee, we're a reasonable bunch :)15:52
sorenSometimes, perhaps :)15:53
sorenI'd like a few days to test it.. When was the freeze again?15:53
BenCHmm, we are actually planning an upload this evening...and the chances of another upload before release is very slim15:54
BenCbut not impossible15:54
rtgzul: how is the IO_DELAY patch coming for xen?15:55
zulneed to compile test it15:55
sorenBenC: So you all go on holiday starting tomorrow? :)15:55
rtgzul: I have compile engines if you can give me the patch15:55
zulsure gimme a sec...ill put it up somewhere15:56
rtgsoren: we're gone until after UDS :)15:56
zulrtg: http://people.ubuntu.com/~chucks/0003-xen-io-delay-fix.patch15:57
rtgzul: cool15:57
zulrtg: hopefully that will fix it15:57
BenCIf not, maybe just add a 0000-revert-iodelay.patch for xen15:58
BenCrtg: is -rt or -openvz experiencing problems with iodelay?15:59
BenCI'd do the revert for them instantly if so15:59
rtgBenC: nope15:59
rtgxen fails because of the way they generate asm includes.15:59
rtgBenC: or rather, include/asm/mach-xen/asm includes. Its kind of weird.16:01
zulyeah that totally sucks...redhat is getting dom0 to work with paravirt-ops16:01

tjaaltonrtg: madwifi-0.9.4 builds fine16:50
rtgtjaalton: cool. we should have an upload later today that fixes the sparc/powerpc/hppa FTBSs.16:51
tjaaltonrtg: ok, I don't have any further changes, the one that was assigned turned out to be invalid16:52
tjaaltonof course there'll be new nvidia/fglrx tomorrow..16:52
rtgtjaalton: isn't that the way it always is :)16:53

aboganirtg: Sorry for Xen break!17:04
BenCHey ppl17:04
rtgabogani: np. zul fixed it right up.17:04
BenCRunning a little late on starting the meeting...17:04
smbBenC: Hi17:05
ckingBenC: hiya17:05
BenCBasically we are jumping right into this list: https://edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+milestone/ubuntu-8.0417:05
BenCs/edge\.// for the non-beta-launchpad folks17:05
BenCBug #188226 is the first one17:06
ubotuLaunchpad bug 188226 in linux "Kernel should use CONFIG_FAIR_CGROUP_SCHED" [High,In progress] https://launchpad.net/bugs/18822617:06
BenCAny comments on that? I'm sort of on the fence with it17:06
BenCI'm open to enabling this for certain flavours too, as opposed to all flavours17:07
rtgI thought the server folks would have som e interest in this.17:08
BenCdefault in kernel Kconfig is USER_SCHED17:08
rtgdoes CGROUPS _require_ a user space app to configure?17:08
BenCNo, you can configure it with echo if you want17:09
BenCbut the udev/userspace stuff makes it easier to automate17:09
rtgthese guys say you can simulate USER_SCHED usgin CGROUPS.17:09
BenCAre the tools in universe?17:10
BenCright, but that's a bit much to do right before RC, I think17:10
rtgI'm not sure that 'High' is the appropriate priority.17:10
BenCMaybe this should be in server flavours, and re-evaluate at UDS17:11
rtgthat is what I proposedto soren awhile ago.17:11
ckingThe scheduler cannot be all things to all men all the time17:11
BenCsoren: server flavours == -server in i386/amd64, and all of sparc/hppa/ia6417:12
rtgsince I'm doing test build, I can take care of it.17:12
BenCGreat, thanks...please update the bug report with the decision too17:13
rtgjust doing so...17:13
BenCBug #20005717:13
ubotuLaunchpad bug 200057 in linux "HP / Compaq laptops crash with port 0x80 delay write" [High,In progress] https://launchpad.net/bugs/20005717:13
BenCTim, that's assigned to you...that's fixed with iodelay, right?17:14
rtgyep - fix committed.,17:14
rtgi have positive feedback that it solves a problem.17:14
BenCBug #18767117:14
ubotuLaunchpad bug 187671 in linux "sdhci module hangs Everex StepNote 2053T" [Medium,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/18767117:14
rtghopefully it won't introduce regressions.17:15
BenCsmb: That one's assigned to you...what's the status?17:15
smbThis is still being debugged on kernel bugzilla17:15
smbThere isn't something definitive, yet. Looks like certin inb operations lock up when done in series17:16
smbbut not always the same. Strange timing issue17:16
BenCwonder if it's hardware17:16
rtgsmb: will the DMI IO_DELAY patch help?17:16
smbI am not sure, there is a chence17:17
mjg59rtg: I doubt it - unless it's doing inb_p, it doesn't cover that codepath17:17
rtgmjg59: that was kind of what I was wondering.17:17
smbno, not that i know of only normal inb, inw...17:18
smbbut I check against that17:18
smbUsing readb, readl, readw...17:19
=== BenC__ is now known as BenC
BenCsmb: Unless you can come up with something definitive by the end of the week, we may have to just mark it -later17:20
BenCAnd that's the last open bug on the list17:21
smbBenC: ok17:21
smbThere is bug 13466017:21
ubotuLaunchpad bug 134660 in linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24 "Ralink rt2400 / rt2500 / rt2570 / rt61 / rt73 do not work out of the box in Gutsy/Hardy" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/13466017:21
BenCit's not milestoned for ubuntu-8.0417:21
smbI am currently building a test kernel we could try17:21
BenCif it needs to be looked at, please make sure it is milestoned17:21
smbBenC: Its on the milestone list17:21
* BenC missed it17:22
BenCI see it now17:22
BenCsmb: Ok, just to recap what we discussed earlier, if testing shows that 2.6.25 rt2x00 code works for the reporter, we'll get it in17:23
smbBenC: Right17:23
smbIf it doesn't I would mark it as -later 17:24
BenCplease make sure the bug is updated with that info so folks know what our intentions are17:24
BenCAnything we missed, or that needs to be added to the milestone list?17:24
BenCrtg: later I want to review the dell patches I have to make sure we aren't missing anything17:25
BenCAlright, that's the end of the meeting then17:26
BenCThanks everyone17:26
rtgBenC: ok. Mario complained about some missing ones yesterday, but I think I got 'em since.17:26
keescookhola.  any general eta on l-u-m for -13?18:11
rtgkeescook: uploading a kernel tonight. lum/lrm/lbm too follow.18:12
rtgI could do them earlier, but the last kernel upload FTBS on all but x86/x86_6418:13
keescookrtg: sweet, okay.  I was testing -13 for my kvm and aa fixes, and noticed my sound was gone.  :P18:13
