Warning: dev (ttyS1) tty->count(6) != #fd's(5) in tty_release_dev
Hi, I often get several such messages during system boot, at least when udev is in debug mode (udev_log="debug") and console=ttyS1,19200n8r under Linux 2.6.32 and udev 150. The numbers vary, but they are always small and the difference is always one. For example, as captured on a serial line: udevd-work[ 1... 27 Jan 2010 19:27

CLONE_VM: parent terminates silently when child segfaults
When a process cloned with CLONE_VM is killed by SIGSEGV, the parent process is terminated silently. I don't know if this is known or intended behaviour, but I didn't find anything about it. The test program below demonstrates the problem. It forks a process which in turn clones another process which kills itself... 27 Jan 2010 17:10
