I did regression test for v1.5.1 in the last weekend and found some bugs.
So the release date will be delayed by few weeks, sorry.
However, I don't think there are big issues for almost all users, because:
- #1 doesn't happen unless users specify -x option, and it's unnecessary
for these kernels.
- As for #2, I think there are few users.
So, I think v1.5.1-rc is enough for almost all users.
#1. Fail to exclude free pages with page_is_buddy_v2() in some cases.
I mentioned this issue in the post below:
Related kernel: v2.6.27 to v2.6.37
#2. Fail to exclude free pages with page_is_buddy_v1() in some cases.
I'm investigating this issue now.
Related kernel: v2.6.15 to v2.6.17
