  • [timer] kernel panic in timer interrupt in kexec on nodes with buggy BIOS fixed (PSBM-12579)
  • [memory reclaimer] possibility to use sync writeback, make nodes much more responsive on high memory pressure (PSBM-11683, #2188)
  • [oom] OOM priorities configuration has been reworked completely (PSBM-12263)
  • [cgroups] kernel panic in devcgroup_seq_read() has been fixed (PSBM-12254)
