smbHm I think manjo had been looking into fw stuff, but best would be a) a bug report and b) a mail to the kernel-team mailing list pointing to the bug and issue09:18
smbcking, These drugs a bad for your health09:18
smbcking, Sorry, I know its probably too early and to out of time for lame jokes. 09:19
lucentthat is helpful, I was going to try linux-ieee1394 directly but it's very low traffic and I don't see much interactivity to resolve issues since a while09:19
ckingit's a fine joke, but my brain is somewhere else at the mo09:19
smblucent, Sometimes it may be helpful to check git for the name of people which had done recent patches09:20
lucentsmb: what is my required reading before posting to that mailing list?09:23
lucentI'm curious if there's interest in me even reporting this issue, to be honest, before I do work to report it ah09:24
smblucent, Writing to kernel-team@list.ubuntu.com probably is rather a heads up, it could be a cc when you report somewhere else, too. But to get ahead with upstream directly it is probably better to write to linux1394 and cc Stefan Richter (see MAINTAINERS file)09:28
lucentI can dig it. Thanks09:29

apwsmb, do you keep the kernel-ppa cruft cleaned out ?13:50
apw(or is it reaping itself?)13:51
smbits not me at least13:51
* apw means the pre-proposed PPA, rather than mainliine builds in this context13:51
smbI believe that is now done automatically when things are superseded within the ppa13:51
smbNot doing anything to clean them13:52
apwsmb most excellent ... did wonder13:52
tgardnerapw, I don't think you can see old packages unless you login as kernel-ppa13:52
apwtgardner, so they could be there and need cleaning up then13:53
tgardnerapw, thats my recollection13:53
smboh, ok13:53
ckingbtw, I've got a less power intensive notify-osd in my ppa13:53
smbcking, how does that work?13:54
apwcking, sounds good13:54
ckingsmb, reduces the polling from 120Hz to 10Hz13:54
smbapw, Are you already looking into the ppa?13:54
smbcking, Ouch, that sounds like an awful lot13:55
ckingsmb, that was my reaction 13:55
mjg59I'm not clear on why it polls. Shouldn't it be entirely event driven?13:58
ckingmjg59, it should. I've filed a bug against it13:59
apwmjg59, it seems it is hard to find out where the cursor while ignoring the pointer so that the clicks go through; cnd had a proposal using transparent panels which should do the right thing (tm)14:16

smoserwhen is the next stable kernel update expected ?  I'm wanting to know when i could expect for jjohansen's patch to bug 574910 to be pulled.15:00

smbsmoser, We just moved the last one to updates. That patch is pending to be uploaded and build, but then should move to updates relatively quickly15:01
smosersmb, is there something i can read on the process of this ? i really have no idea how to follow it other than bothering people :)15:02
smoserand although it may seem otherwise, i dont like bothering people15:02
smbsmoser, Theoretically things get uploaded and you can see the current pending sru updates there http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/pending-sru.html15:03
smbWe are a bit behind with the upload to ec2 because the rebase was a bit clashing with upstream15:04
smbsmoser, When we upload you normally get a request to verify that posted to the bug report15:05
smoseralright. so we're then hoping for that sometime soon, and then the 1 week stay in -proposed.15:05
smoserright, its more the time before upload that i was/am unclear on.15:05
smbsmoser, If you do the testing feedback it could be even quicker for ec2. As the main changes have been in proposed long enough and just pushed to updates15:06
smoseroh. well then i can get those tested. i didn't realize they were in proposed.15:07
smbsmoser, Usually the upload is done whenever there is something in proposed for the normal kernel. But this sometimes faces time problems with other things creeping up15:07
smbits currently no. as said we are a bit lagging behind15:08
smbshould be today though15:08
smoserah. well ok. well as soon as its in proposed, i will get it available for others ont hat bug to test.15:09
smbsmoser, anybody subscribed to that bug should see the update there and get notified about the new upload to proposed15:10
smoserwell, yes.15:10
smoserbut its not that easy on ec215:10
smoserwe (I) have to upload a kernel to ec2 so someone can run it.15:11
smoserthere is a whole in the process... we have nothing automated watching -proposed and uploading kernels.15:11
smbOh, right. Yes. In that case you see the notification and can then upload it to ec2 when it is in proposed15:11
smoserok. thank you smb. so i'll be expecting something early this week in -proposed, and will make sure it gets tested.15:13
smbsmoser, So when things are uploaded you should see without poking people. Until then... Well, if it takes long there may be no way around that for the moment15:13
smoseryeah. i just wondered if there was a general insight into your proces that i could just follow along with.15:13
smoseri know you dont upload for every fix (which makes sense), but generally don't know how you group them or wait.15:13

apwor is ubotu being hopeless 15:28
smoserits just bad ubotu15:28
smoserit is invalid on linux-meta, and in progress on linux-ec215:28
smbapw, ubotu. As smoser sais its on linux-ec215:28
akgranerapw yep...15:28
apwakgraner, heh good luck with that15:29
smbsmoser, Not sure what the New on Linux is about15:29
apwsmoser, i assume this does not show up in maverick ?15:29
smoseryou should ask jjohansen for sure. i think it actually does affecdt upstream .  but my memory is fuzzy15:29
akgranerapw, I'll let jono know :-)15:30
smbapw, Depends. I think we still carry cnd's patch for the load calculation15:30
apwthe patch being reverted is cnd's mod15:30
smbapw, Right, I have not exactly followed what happened there. For some reason it feels like there was some talk about a different approach upstream or some update15:31
apwsmb i don't see that commit in maverick15:31
apwso i assume maverick is not affected by this bug, but may be affected by the original15:32
smbapw, Ok, right or the is actually the other approach which I was not sure about15:32
tgardnerapw, I'm thinking we dropped cnd's fix in favor of an upstream solution15:32
smbtgardner, Ok, so we are thinking the same. I just cannot remember for sure15:33
cndtgardner, apw, smb, in maverick I believe we have the upstream solution15:35
cndin lucid and karmic we might still have my patch15:35
smbcnd, yes to lucid and karmic15:35
smbI mean there it is in15:35
smbjust reverted for ec215:36
apwsmoser, so ... have we had any issues reported on the paravirt kernels in maverick ?15:36
apwtgardner, cnd, thanks for the clarification15:36
smoserapw, a couple. but tnothing that appears paravirt specific.15:39
apwcool thanks15:40
cndsmoser, I just took a look at the bug report15:41
cndI'm concerned that the high load avgs aren't just because of the statistics reporting change15:42
cndthe patch that I wrote only affected the load avg calculation15:42
cndbut people seem to have real loads that are hitting their throughput15:42
smoserwell, yes, and we've tried to get them to open new bugs to address that.15:43
smbcnd, IIRC jjohansen has tested reverting and saw things going down to expected values15:43
cndsmoser, ok15:43
smoserthere are load issues with lucid15:43
cndsmb, yes, but I still worry that we might be seeing a symptom of a different problem15:43
smoserthat bug is very much "meta bug"15:43
cndand reverting the patch just papers over it15:43
cndsmoser, ahh, ok, that makes sense15:43
smbcnd, Yes, there were multiple issues in that bug15:43
smoserpeople googled "bad kernel performance lucid" and hit it and it went everywhere15:43
apwa reason to change the title immediatly15:44
cndanyways, my .0215:44
smoserso basically, there are real issues with lucid performance that people are seeing, but we've not gotten a lot of good feedback as to what those are.  john has a good understanding of what was wrong in the calculation.15:44
smoserhey is infinitely more suited to discuss it.15:45
smoserthan i15:45
smbcnd, I believe there might even be some writeback performance issues in there which will get addressed by the changes we just got into updates for master15:47
smosersmb, do you have a bug number for "writeback performance issues"16:03
jjohansensmoser: it should be on the bug a couple of times16:04
smbsmoser, There were two I remember. Though those rather addressed the long unmount time. While the set of patches also enhances general write performance16:04
jjohansensmb: yes but it really sounds like a couple people were doing unmounts16:05
smoserwell, if its ext4 only, its not likely causing anyone problems on ec216:05
smoserour 10.04 images use ext316:05
smoser(just remembering that some of the performance issues were ext4, i thought)16:06
smbsmoser, jjohansen bug 585092 and bug 54361716:06
jjohansensmoser: so of those people aren't using our images16:06

smbsmoser, the writeback changes affect all filesystems. Though I only tested ext4 and xfs16:07
jjohansencnd: as for the patch, it was a real problem, it was applying nohz logic to a Hz based kernel, reverting your patch and using the upstream problem as fixed the phantom load issue16:08
smoserjjohansen, you and i will have to discuss if this new kernel would warrent racing out new images, rather than releasing them at the end of next month.16:08
smbbjf, How far are you with preparing the ec2 update in Lucid?16:09
bjfsmb, i'm still unclear from you email how to get the security fixes back onto the ec2 branch, but other than that, it wouldn't take long to get it ready for upload16:10
cndjjohansen, yeah, I still believe you :)16:11
cndjust one of those pit of the stomach feelings16:11
smbbjf, You get them by the rebase. The only problem is/was that you don't get the right version by rebasing. So its just a small modification of the last commit to make it right16:11
bjfsmb, ok, can take care of it right away16:12
smbbjf, ok great. sconklin should be able to make uploads for it by now16:13
bjfsmb, i'll get on it right now16:13
smbbjf, I am not sure how much this helps, just generally in order to verify the rebases i search for the version of the rebase target (eg. 2.6.32-25.44) and look whether the next patch after that looks like some topic branch patch. That does not help that much with the version number which is better looked up with launchpad or rmadison.16:17
jjohansencnd: oh I agree that there are multiple other issues, I have stated that repeatedly in the bug, along with reverting was only valid for ec2 etc.  And begged people to open new bugs, just to have them ignore and continue, accuse us of not working on the real issues etc.16:23
