Re: Does the Linux kernel for alpha support CONFIG_PREEMPT?
Darn - it was suggested that a performance issue I'm having with a Sil
3124 based pci-x esata card and a port multiplier might be helped with
pre-emption enabled - just not for Alpha :)
I know that the DS20 often has PCI issues - anyone know of what may
cause issues with a 64bit PCI-X card on the machine?
Any recommended placements for such thing?
I have 3 64 bit cards in the machine, a VIA gig ethernet, a combo
scsi/ethernet card and the 3124-2 based eSata card ....

Are there patches available for Alpha in the case that it does not?
Not sure. I do not see a PREEMPT option in the config file on my alpha
running Etch though, so I would suspect that it does not support preempt
at this time. As for patches I have no idea.
Looking at the kernel source I see preempt included only by:
i386 mips parisc powerpc ppc x86_64
