Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-09-03 13:17:35 UTC
We have no plans to enable preemption in RHEL4.

You do not explain why you think we should enable this..... could you
do so ?

Is this a general RHEL4 statement or just a zSeries statement? 

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2004-09-10 07:10:34 UTC
This setting is uniform accross architectures, including zSeries.

Again, why do you think we should enable this? I'm interested to find
that out...

If this is cross Series, than don't enable for z. z should be as much as
possible the same as the other architectures! 

Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2004-09-10 13:16:53 UTC
sounds like this one can be closed.....
