[PATCH resend] ext4: allow defrag (EXT4_IOC_MOVE_EXT) in 32bit compat mode
Ted, can you consider this patch for ext4? From: Christian Borntraeger <borntraeger(a)de.ibm.com> I have an x86_64 kernel with i386 userspace. e4defrag fails on the EXT4_IOC_MOVE_EXT ioctl because it is not wired up for the compat case. It seems that struct move_extent is compat save, only types with fixed widt... 12 Mar 2010 02:50

[PATCH 1/3] memcg: oom wakeup filter
This patch is my answer to a concern for memcg-fix-oom-kill-behavior-v4.patch in mmotm. The concern was that patch uses system-wide waitq. For handling hierarchy, per-mm waitq is not useful...this patch adds filter at wake-up. Works well on my test. == From: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu(a)jp.fujitsu.com... 12 Mar 2010 00:40
