Sam's select/poll infrastructure removal project is now in HEAD. This
project reimplements the kernel's select() and poll() system calls using
per-thread kqueues and removes the original select/poll infrastructure.
We expect there to be some bugs so anyone running HEAD please report
issues where (primarily) programs wind up blocking on something and
not waking up when they should, or if the system crashes or deadlocks
when it did not before.
Alex's lvm/dm port from linux is now in HEAD. It is considered highly
experimental and at the moment only the crypto and striping (I think)
modules are operational. The crypto could use some testing.
Please note that this really is highly experimental right now and
anyone doing testing should expect to lose filesystems mounted under
lvm/dm at this juncture.
