v4.7_0472_test0 patch released
There is no new code for this first test patch, not even include the debug patches(for 4.6) in the previous post.
Base on the sanity test result, the new code changes in the test patch improve throughput on non-SMT cpu, in all kinds of workload scenarios, just like the sanity result in 4.6 release(v4.6_0470_test4 patch for testing & 4.6 Sanity test raw data). But for SMT cpus, throughput regression are recorded.
So the next important item for -test branch would be fix the regression on SMT cpus.
Enjoy this first -test patch for 4.7 and wait for the next -test release, :)
