[PATCH -v3 0/5] always lock the root anon_vma

This should fix the last bits of the anon_vma locking. v3 is identical to v2... 26 May 2010 16:56
[PATCH 3/5] track the root (oldest) anon_vma
Subject: track the root (oldest) anon_vma Track the root (oldest) anon_vma in each anon_vma tree. Because we only take the lock on the root anon_vma, we cannot use the lock on higher-up anon_vmas to lock anything. This makes it impossible to do an indirect lookup of the root anon_vma, since the data structures... 26 May 2010 16:56
[PATCH v2 0/2] tmpfs: Improve tmpfs scalability

The i2c drivers control a power management IC which is needed to enable the graphics controller. Is there a way to set up that order? T... 27 May 2010 19:16
