A pending change to the Mesa Radeon Vulkan driver "RADV" is leading to much lower system RAM use for some games that make use of many Vulkan Graphics Pipeline Libraries (GPL). The game causing this issue to be investigated was Valve's Dota 2 on RADV and is now seeing an 85% reduction in system RAM use by this open-source Radeon Linux driver...

Intel Sapphire Rapids Performance With Google Cloud Compute Engine C3

Phoronix - Pon, 03/27/2023 - 17:00
Back in October Google announced their Compute Engine C3 instances in private preview that featured 4th Gen Xeon Scalable "Sapphire Rapids" processors as well as making use of Google's custom Intel Infrastructure Processing Unit (IPU). Since then, back in January, was the big Sapphire Rapids launch with the likes of the Xeon Platinum 8490H being released. Last month meanwhile Google promoted the C3 VMs to public preview state. The Sapphire Rapids C3 VMs remain in "public preview" from Google Cloud during which time there are no charges involved for the CPU costs. For those wondering about the core-for-core performance of Sapphire Rapids in Google Cloud, here are my initial benchmarks of the C3 series.

[$] The curious case of O_DIRECTORY|O_CREAT

LWN.net - Pon, 03/27/2023 - 15:10
The open() system call offers a number of flags that modify its behavior; not all combinations of those flags make sense in a single call. It turns out, though, that the kernel has responded in a surprising way to the combination of O_CREAT and O_DIRECTORY for a long time. After a 2020 change made that response even more surprising, it seems likely that this behavior will soon be fixed, resulting in a rare user-visible semantic change to a core system call.
