[PATCH 1/1] pids: alloc_pidmap: remove the unnecessary boundary checks
alloc_pidmap() calculates max_scan so that if the initial offset != 0 we inspect the first map->page twice. This is correct, we want to find the unused bits < offset in this bitmap block. Add the comment. But it doesn't make any sense to stop the find_next_offset() loop when we are looking into this map->page for... 15 Jun 2010 15:23
[PATCH 0/1] (Was: Fix a race in pid generation that causes pids to be reused immediately.)
On 06/11, Salman wrote: A program that repeatedly forks and waits is susceptible to having the same pid repeated, I agree this patch should fix this. But the kernel still can use the same pid twice in a row, I am wondering if there a simple solution to prevent this. Probably not, and this case is unlik... 15 Jun 2010 15:23

[PATCH 0/2] tty: add EXTPROC support for LINEMODE
Paraphrased from the 1989 BSD patch by David Borman @ cray.com: These are the changes needed for the kernel to support LINEMODE in the server. There is a new bit in the termios local flag word, EXTPROC. When this bit is set, several aspects of the terminal driver are disabled. Input l... 15 Jun 2010 14:17
[PATCH] mempolicy: fix dangling reference to tmpfs superblock mpol
Against 2.6.35-rc1+ My patch to "Factor out duplicate put/frees in mpol_shared_policy_init() to a common return path"; and Dan Carpenter's fix thereto both left a dangling reference to the incoming tmpfs superblock mempolicy structure. A similar leak was introduced earlier when the nodemask was moved offstack to... 15 Jun 2010 14:17

nfsd hang and kernel bug in 2.6.35-rc3
Booting up kernel 2.6.35-rc3 on my netbook, with the kernel compiled for an Atom N270 processor, hangs when starting nfsd. If I then end the hang by rebooting with Ctrl-Alt-Delete, I get a kernel bug reported. The only one of these that has been logged is as follows, as on other boots the bug seems to be reported... 17 Jun 2010 11:09
