6:11 PM - ATA driver
I commited a patch to the ATA driver which corrects a few possible deadlock cases. Its not quite as good as it could be, but it should at least prevent some problems. It needs further testing as my development machine only has IDE optical drives. This may correct some of the problems noticed when deleting a large directory (rm -rf) or other highly intensive disk operations. I'll test upgrade another system when I get more time. Archite will also be testing the patch tonight.
This is the first real src commit in awhile. I've been busy with ports lately. Once the patch is tested, its strongly recommened you build a new kernel from it.
