v4.7_0472_vrq3 patch is released
The new code changes have been in -test branch since 4.6 release and
tested by users since then, bugs has been fixed and improvement has been
added. Although currently -test branch is pending on user feedback for
further improvement, but IMO, these code changes now on the -test branch
are stable enough to be merged into the -vrq branch. So, here it comes the v4.7_0472_vrq3 patch.
This patch is identical with v4.7_0472_test2 except the version print out in dmesg. Comparing to -vrq2, the major feature in vrq3(-test2) is the introduction of preempt stick task to replace the original stick timeout in previous release, which helps with high workload performance and the result can be proved in the sanity test report.
Code has been pushed to bitbucket and github, all-in-one patch is also available.
Enjoy -vrq3, :)
