[PATCH] ipc/sem.c: Bugfix for incorrect setting of sem_otime
The attached patch corrects a bug that I've introduced with the previous patch series: sem_otime is the time of the last successful semop() call. Andrew, could you add it into your -mm tree? It is on top of the path that fixes the missing initialization. Signed-off-by: Manfred Spraul <manfred(a)>... 14 May 2010 05:10

[PATCH] blkdev: cgroup whitelist permission fix
The cgroup device whitelist code gets confused when trying to grant permission to a disk partition that is not currently open. Part of blkdev_open() includes __blkdev_get() on the whole disk. This simply avoids the cgroup check for the whole disk case when opening a partition. 14 May 2010 04:05
[PATCH 1/2] kmemleak: Fix some false positives with special scan
From: Hiroshi DOYU <Hiroshi.DOYU(a)> There is the false positive that the pointer is calculated by other methods than the usual container_of macro. "kmemleak_ignore" can cover a false positive, but it would loose the advantage of kmemleak. This patch allows kmemleak to work with such false positives by int... 14 May 2010 04:05
[PATCH 2/2] kmemleak: test: Add a special scan test case
From: Hiroshi DOYU <Hiroshi.DOYU(a)> The pointer is converted to a physical address with attribution bits. The test can be done either with special scan or without special scan, which can be specified with the kernel module parameter, "use_special". This can be squashed into kmemleak-test.c if necessary. ... 14 May 2010 04:05
[RFC][PATCH 0/2] kmemleak: Fix some false positives with special scan
Hi, I always get the false positives for the iommu 1st level page table since it stores the pointer to the 2nd level page table, but it is converted to a physical address with some attribute bits. "kmemleak_ignore" can cover this problem, but will loose the advantage of powerful kmemleak detection. So I experime... 14 May 2010 04:05
