 2.5's Performance Improvements

Kernel trap reports on Andrew Morton on 2.5's performance improvements.

"For the uniprocessors and small servers, there will be significant gains in some corner cases. And some losses. Quite a lot of work has gone into "fairness" issues: allowing tasks to make equal progress when the machine is under load. Not stalling tasks for unreasonable amounts of time, etc. Simple operations such as copying a forest of files from one part of the disk to another have taken a bit of a hit from this. (But copying them to another disk got better)."
