[PATCH] binfmt_elf_fdpic: fix clear_user() error handling
Hi, I found some places in bin_elf_fdpic at which clear_user() is incorrectly handled, by chance, when I was trying to check how to use clear_user(). IIUC, the following commit was not correct. commit ab4ad55512e95b68ca3e25516068e18874f89252 bin_elf_fdpic: check the return value of clear_user Although I... 28 May 2010 05:00

[PATCH 5/8] sched: clarify commment for TS_POLLING
From: Len Brown <len.brown(a)intel.com> TS_POLLING set tells the scheduler an idle_task will poll need_resched() to look for work. TS_POLLING clear tells resched_task() and wake_up_idle_cpu() that the remote CPU's idle_task is now sleeping in idle, and thus requires a reschedule interrupt notice work.

[PATCH] checkpatch: refactor 'allowed asm includes' and add memory.h
Change the check suggesting replacement of asm-includes with linux-includes. Exceptions to this rule are easier to extend now. Add memory.h because ARM has a custom one.

FLAT: tweak default stack alignment
Jivin Mike Frysinger lays it down ... The recent commit 1f0ce8b3dd667dca7 which moved the ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN default into the global header inadvertently broke FLAT for a bunch of systems. Blackfin systems now fail on any FLAT exec with: Unable to read code+data+bss, errno 14 When your /init is a FLAT... 28 May 2010 02:51
