rtc: rp5c01 - Add NVRAM support
On Sun, Jun 13, 2010 at 12:12, Geert Uytterhoeven <geert(a)> wrote: The Ricoh RP5C01 RTC contains 26 x 4 bits of NVRAM. Provide access to it via a sysfs "nvram" attribute file.

block: Don't count_vm_events for discard bio in submit_bio.

It looks as if in blkdev_issue_discard, we also add a page as the payload and the bio_has_data check isn't enough. So ... 23 Jun 2010 16:11

[PATCH] sanitize task->comm to avoid leaking escape codes
Through get_task_comm() and many direct uses of task->comm in the kernel, it is possible for escape codes and other non-printables to leak into dmesg, syslog, etc. In the worst case, these strings could be used to attack administrators using vulnerable terminal emulators, and at least cause confusion through the i... 23 Jun 2010 15:04

The machine in question is a Dell Latitude E6410 - i5 quad core laptop, with the intel Ironlake chip, and the failure condition is such that when the boot sequen... 7 Jul 2010 15:41
