The ~200 line Linux kernel patch that does wonders

&nbsp;In recent weeks and months there has been quite a bit of work towards <a href="http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&amp;px=ODAxOQ">improving the responsiveness of the Linux desktop</a> with some <a href="http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&amp;px=ODQ3Mw">very significant milestones</a> <a href="http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&amp;px=ODQ3OQ">building up recently</a> and <a href="http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&amp;px=ODU0OQ">new patches</a> continuing to come. This work is greatly improving the experience of the Linux desktop when the computer is withstanding a great deal of CPU load and memory strain. Fortunately, the exciting improvements are far from over. There is a new patch that has not yet been merged but has undergone a few revisions over the past several weeks and it is quite small -- just over 200 lines of code -- but it does wonders for the Linux desktop.
