Yes I am, but I think it'll be next year some time if I do as there are more
items on my list. Could you please send me the test program anyway?
Incidentally I saw a thundering herd problem with this enabled (PG_WANTED
vs. wakeup()). From a quick look it seems like more of a general UBC
problem than a problem with ubc_direct but definitely something that needs
looking into. It could be mitigated somewhat with wakeup_one() and
associated changes but would be nice to address the root cause. This was
actually kind of amusing to watch in top(1), I wish I had a video:
