[PATCH] forcedeth: reconfigure multicast packet filter only when needed
Currently, the forcedeth driver reconfigures the packet filter every time a multicast stream is (un-)subscribed. As the receiving has to be stopped and started in this case, any multicast subscription can cause packet loss, allowing userspace applications to disrupt incoming traffic. With the following patch, nv... 12 Aug 2010 06:02
[PATCH 2/3] cgroup_freezer: Fix can_attach to prohibit moving from/to freezing/frozen cgroups
It is possible to move a task from its cgroup even if this group is 'FREEZING'. This results in a nasty bug - the moved task will become frozen OUTSIDE its original cgroup and will remain in a permanent 'D' state. This patch allows to migrate the task only between THAWED cgroups. This behavior was observed and... 12 Aug 2010 06:02
[PATCH] alpha: convert perf_event to use local_t

[PATCH 1/3] cgroup_freezer: Unnecessary test in cgroup_freezing_or_frozen
The root freezer_state is always CGROUP_THAWED so we can remove the special case from the code. The test itself can be handy and is extracted to static function.

[PATCH 0/3] Two bugfixes for cgroup freezer.
These patches fixes two bugs I discovered when working with the cgroup freezer. These patches fix them (and probably also some other variations of them) and now the kernel passes testcases that uncovered the bugs in the first place. Please review.

[PATCH 3/3] cgroup_freezer: update_freezer_state does incorrect state transactions
There are 4 state transitions possible for a freezer. Only FREEZING -> FROZEN transaction is done lazily. This patch allows update_freezer_state only to perform this transaction and renames the function to update_if_frozen. Moreover is_task_frozen_enough function is removed and its every occurence is replaced w... 12 Aug 2010 06:02
