Hi guys,

Attached below is my announcement letter to oss.sgi.com. A smiliar one
will be sent to LKML.

Correction to my English is appreciated!

Hi,

I have broken up previously one big CSA kernel patch into four
smaller ones:

    csa_io     - collects io accounting data
    csa_mm     - collects mm accounting data
    csa_eop    - provides a hook to perform end-of-process accounting
    csa_module - builds csa loadable module

The files can be found at usual place with the following file names:
    linux-2.6.8.csa_io.patch
    linux-2.6.8.csa_mm.patch
    linux-2.6.8.csa_eop.patch
    linux-2.6.8.csa_module.patch

There is no functional change in this set of csa patches compared
to the 2.6.7 patch linux-2.6.7.csa.patch.

Patches csa_io, csa_mm, and csa_eop are independent to each other.
You may apply any one of the three or all and would be able to
build a functional kernel. However, data collected needs an agent
to use it. The csa_module is one agent that takes advangtage of
the feature and works with csa-2.0.0 or later rpm to report system
accounting data of the host system.

The csa_module patch requires all three accounting data patches to
be fully functional.

This set of csa patches have been tested with the pagg and job
kernel patches to linux 2.6.8 kernel.

The csa_module requires the pagg and job kernel patches.

Feedback, bug report, and comments are very welcome!
