Is there any reason why this patch was applied? Because NVidia users
can't work with the original drivers now without removing this patch
We need to push this issue along quickly. The single-page stack
generally gives us a better kernel and having the stack size configurable
Add my voice to those who don't think 4k stacks are a good idea as a
default, they break some things and seem to leave other paths (as others
have noted) on the edge. I'm not sure what you have in mind as a "better
kernel" but I'd rather have a worse kernel and not have to check 4k
stack as a possible problem before looking at other things if I get bad
Reliability first, performance later. We've lived with the config for a
while, pain there is better than pain at runtime.
Opposite opinion here.
If you want 100% reliability you shouldn't use -mm in the first place.
Making 4kb stacks default in -mm is very good idea so it will get necessary
testing and fixing before being integrated into mainline.
Please also note that users of binary only modules always have choice:
- new kernels without binary only modules
- old kernels with binary only modules
It is really that simple.
