comment Is group priority available?
@siblynx Weird. I went from the Linux manpage "id - print real and effective user and group IDs". Sounds like OS X is not POSIX compliant, despite being based on existing BSD code. pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/utilities/id.html

comment Missing `/dev/sda` when building a minimal kernel for VMware
You don't want to run make localmodconfig inside the VM? To find the ata driver, look at readlink -f /sys/class/ata*/*. That will show the pci device, then you can find name of the module for it e.g. cat readlink /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/driver/module

Yep. AHCI is a better interface, and it's used across physical systems from multiple vendors. If there's a default hardware model for modern OS's, it probably uses AHCI. Except that you might also want to be able to take advantage of virt-specific drivers. E.g. wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VMware/… Typically module names are mentioned in Kconfig and you can search for them (I think "/" key or ctrl+f in make xconfig). Or I think git grep vmw_pvscsi should find the Kconfig file and identify the corresponding CONFIG_ option.

1) surely you'd prefer AHCI? 2) yes, /boot/config* 3) to disable unused modules you can run make localmodconfig in the VM unix.stackexchange.com/a/275747/29483

comment How to compile efivar?
Exactly. I meant the OE recipe is misleading because it doesn't apply to 0.23, the version the OP was actually building. The recipe is called "update to 0.23" and it says "Upstream removed the use of the nvme headers completely, so no more conflicts." The reason the recipe works (despite removing the blacklist line) is that it fetches the revision 01abee4.

comment How to compile efivar?
I was about to say, the problem with the OE recipe in the question's first link is that it's not efivar-0.23. It's actually 0.23-15-g01abee4, which includes the second patch you mention.

comment UDP receive buffer error
@Satish Thanks (to whoever) for upvoting my answer, but I'm not actually sure it should be marked as "accepted" without comment. It'd be great if you could outline how you resolved this internally. Even just "we decided Rui had a point and stopped doing it", or "it doesn't seem to be causing a real problem". Because my answer was just "nice counters, they seem to exclude all the well-known problems". (I noticed a Redhat PDF suggests UDP errors could be due to a malformed length or maybe other stuff like that, but I don't know what situation would contrive to do so). Did you solve RX errors?

tho cat /proc/self/cgroup might be helpful
