    printk-times added to new Linux Kernel

    Linus just added the "printk-times" patch to the main kernel tree. It looks like the next linux kernel will allow you to display times at each printk (in milli/micro seconds) so you can tune your boot.

    Here's the link:
    http://linux.bkbits.net/

    You'll have to select kernel 2.6 and select today's changes (2005-03-09).
    Check out my carputers:
    DVD, GPS, MP3, 6.4" LCD Touchscreen, 5" Headrest LCDs, PSone, DSSC, etc.

    Neat. You know, I've been meaning to contribute *something* to the Linux kernel... I really ought to take a look.
