New on #: LF Mentorship Session: An Introduction to Linux Tracing and its Concepts: youtube.com/watch?v=1KCXvT…

```[…] introduce the building blocks that provide the foundation of tracing in Linux, such as #, #, #, # […] some tracing examples […]```




```[…] In this article, we’ll take a look at why one might use more than one compiler. […] different error msgs […] Static analysis […] Sanitizers[…] Clang fuzzer […] Link-time optimized (LTO) builds […] Control flow integrity in # […]``` #
Use multiple compilers to build better projects



The end of the # # 5.13 merge window nears, so here is a small thread with various changes in the storage area:

* io_uring changes: git.kernel.org/torvalds/c/625…

Among them: multi-shot mode for POLL requests: git.kernel.org/torvalds/c/88e…

[bookmark=https://twitter.com/axboe/status/1387814439597092867]Since the 5.13 io_uring bits have been merged upstream, I ran my favorite (and usual) peak performance test. Looks like 5.13 will be about 5% faster / more efficient than 5.12, 2.83M IOPS vs 3.00M for 5.13.

Just a bunch of little improvements, it all adds up in the end.[/bookmark]
