> Hi,
> this is the last release which is rather finished and complete for the project.
> I tested for consistency for a long time and the FPU handling
> mechanism seems very robust so as copyin/copyout do.
> What I'm looking for, at this point, are testers for peroformances.
> What is proposed in the patch is one of the better solutions for UP
> archs (not running with PREEMPTION) but more general cases might be
> handled with time.
> I hope that somebody wants to play with him, giving suggestions and
> doing different benchmarks.
> The code can be found here:
> http://users.gufi.org/~rookie/works/patches/xmmcopy_6_1.diff
> and is for RELEASE_6_1 in order to have a wider range of testers (a
> diff against HEAD will be available ASAP).
> Please keep in mind that this is not a complete rip of DflyBSD code
> beacause it is different in a lot of parts.
> For any kind of tecnical questions, please mail me.
