I've signed up to mentor a FreeBSD SoC project again this year. I'm most interested in sponsoring the following projects:
1) Improved schedgraph support. 2) User-space lock profiling tool 3) Improved VM tree structures 4) SMP safing Giant protected filesystems.
Maybe others. I know schedgraph and the user-space lock profiling may not sound as glamorous but they have the potential to have the biggest long-term impact on performance. Please email jeff at freebsd.org if you'd like to discuss these further.
