[PATCH] wait_for_helper: SIGCHLD from user-space can lead to use-after-free
(this patch is orthogonal to other umh changes in -mm) 1. wait_for_helper() does allow_signal(SIGCHLD) to ensure the child can't autoreap itself. However, this means that a spurious SIGCHILD from user-space can set TIF_SIGPENDING and: - kernel_thread() or sys_wait4() can fail due to signal_pendi... 10 Mar 2010 13:04

[PATCH 2/2] fs/partition/msdos: Fix unusable extended partition for > 512B sector
We can drop this patch, if we want to delay until someone notice this and have some real requests to this. Smaller size than a minimum blocksize can't be used, after all it's handled like 0 size. For extended partition itself, this makes sure to use bigger size than one logical sector size at least. S... 10 Mar 2010 11:56
