Re: HEADS UP: FreeBSD 6.4 and 8.0 EoLs coming soon

on 07/09/2010 13:38 Vadim Goncharov said the following:
Just to clarify things a little for those following it: the original I4B code
was removed for entirely practical reasons: it couldn't run without the Giant
lock, and support for the Giant lock over the network stack was removed.

But if it was used, removing a component just because of Giant lock is not
practical and is purely ideologic, isn't it?

Which part of "support for the Giant lock *over the network stack* was removed"
[emphasis mine] do you not understand?
The reason is performance for overall network stack, not ideology.

BTW, there were advanced notices for users, request for volunteers, etc.

So, if you didn't speak up at that time please keep silence now :-)

P.S. why is security@ in cc: ?
