This new functionality will also be submitted shortly to the Linux kernel – so that it should hopefully appear in your favorite Linux distribution soon.
I'm very happy to read this.
First because of the integration of interesting feature, such of SMP, directly into the kernel.
But the very good thing is the intention to put the driver code directly in the linux tree.
So no need anymore to recompile the linux_IC to adapt them to my linux distribution.
Hopefully microsoft will do a better job this time of getting the code into the Linux kernel after several months the integration components are still festering in the staging tree with no sigh of they getting into the mainstream kernel
Nice job but please post the kernel versions this is working with. Because I tried it in three different distributions and none worked, there is the same error returned each time. All the distributions are latest versions and even with 2.6.23 kernels, which, as I understood, should have LIC built-in, right?
