Right before sending a SIGKILL to the task selected by the oom-killer this task has it's priority increased so that it can ... 1 Jun 2010 02:11

[PATCH 3/5] oom: Fix child process iteration properly
Oleg pointed out that current oom child process iterating logic is wrong. list_for_each_entry(p->children) can only see the tasks forked by p, it can't see other children forked by its sub-threads.

Add a helper function in PCI IOV to get VF device
Greetings, The motivation is make VF device visible to PF driver. PF driver may need this to access VF's PCI configuration. Another use case is in sysfs symbolic linking. Some of VF's sysfs entries are created by PF driver. For example, /sys/class/net/ethx/vfx in Intel 82576 NIC driver. Makeing a symbolic link f... 18 Jun 2010 13:33
