Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Previously, sysctl settings were not unquoted before they were applied. Consequence: Tuned could silently fail to apply the quoted sysctl settings. This was especially problem for the network-throughput profile. In this profile the sysctl settings were specified quoted which resulted in this tuning not being applied. Fix: The Tuned code was improved to unquote sysctl settings before there are applied. Result: Now the sysctl settings are correctly applied.
