This is mostly solved, and Julian is just tracking down some edge cases
that people have reported.  I'm not sure if we are going to turn on
PREEMPTION for 5.3, though.

This is reported to have gone away.  We are still investigating, though.

I guess you haven't been paying attention to all of the good work that
Pawel is doing here.  I also have fixes in my queue for growfs.

You're probably right here.  We are going to revisit this section later.

One that you failed to mention in the 'Required' section is sparc64 KSE.
That work is in progress thanks to a new volunteer, but I doubt that it'll
be ready for commit in the next week.  I don't like mentioning this item
though since it ties into the larger 'Tier' discussion, and fighting over
that is not something that I like to do every day.

Of the things are you are working on right now, how many do you think
you'll have fixed in the next week?  I'm definitely not trying to rush
you, just curious on what you have planned.
