[rhelv5-list] Will RHEL 5.6 or 6.1 kernel include the rps/rfs patch?



Will RHEL 5.6 or 6.1 kernel include the rps/rfs patch?

Some headline features in kernel-2.6.35 include receive packet steering and
receive flow steering, It seems can greatly increase the networking
performance.

RPS/RFS is a smart for speeding up kernel processing; by spreading packets
across CPUs such that each CPU doesn't interact (cache effects etc) with
other CPUs that are processing network packets.
