intermezzo stack lossage

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 12:02 AM

intermezzo-stack-lossage-2.5.73.diff is tonight’s work. This patch reduces intermezzo’s stack usage in three functions. The kernel has limited stack space for functions, and functions which use 4kb and even 1kb of stack space are unacceptable. Against 2.5.73.

I don’t really expect this patch to get in, as the intermezzo people seem to be ignoring 2.5 for the time being. However, wli said he’s interested in it, as his tree uses 4kb stacks, and maybe someone else will find it interesting as well? other than the grunginess of the intermezzo code, it was fun to write. I should write more kernel code.
