Hunt for 'Lance Armstrong' bug continues in stable Linux kernel
At the outset, it appeared that the bug -- which creates the potential for serious data corruption and loss within the affectedlesystem -- could threaten both the 3.6.2 and 3.6.3 versions of the stable Linux kernel.Developer Ts'o initially described the problem as a "Lance Armstrong" bug -- one that doesn't trip any particular warningsystems but nonetheless results in abnormal behavior -- in a Google Plus post.However, he added in a follow-up that the conditions that could trigger the problem now appear to be far more limitedthan it was initially thought. Specically, the issue may to be related to users shutting their systems down in particularlyunusual ways. [...]

If you're an Electrical Engineer like me or an electronic hobbyist, you appreciate good integrated development environmentsoftware to facilitate your design process.LINUXLINKS.com has as an article titled, "6 Best Free Electronic Design Automation Tools". These tools will enable you todesign and simulate electronic circuits before you build a prototype sample of your design. There is also a program called"Fritzing", to help you take your prototype and construct it into a nal product.

Kernel Review
KVMTool still a separate project
Linus Torvalds has reafrmed that at this point he doesn't intend to pull KVMTool into the mainline Linux kernel.KVMTool is the lightweight QEMU-free native KVM tool. KVMTool has been developed by several open-source developersfor nearly two years.This tool for toying with KVM virtualization supports many features like SMP, various virtio features, QCOW2 read-writesupport, etc. The developers behind the tool have wanted to merge it into the mainline Linux kernel as a separatetool/utility (similar to Intel's turbostat and various other small user-space utilities living within the kernel tree) since thistool can stress the Kernel-based Virtual Machine components without QEMU.KVMTool has been living within the "linux-next" tree, but hasn't been accepted by Linus Torvalds into his mainline tree,including for the latest Linux 3.7 merge window.Torvalds has now explained his reasoning for not accepting this pull: "I have yet to see a compelling argument for mergingit. It's tons of code, it doesnt match the original "small simple" model, and I think it would be better off as a separateproject."So now if KVMTool is to survive it will likely just need to be maintained as its own separate project.
