[PATCH, resend] x86: fix placement of FIX_OHCI1394_BASE
Ever for 32-bit with sufficiently high NR_CPUS, and starting with commit 789d03f584484af85dbdc64935270c8e45f36ef7 also for 64-bit, the statically allocated early fixmap page tables were not covering FIX_OHCI1394_BASE, leading to a boot time crash when "ohci1394_dma=early" was used. Despite this entry not being a p... 15 Mar 2010 06:47
[PATCH 0/6] sched/cpusets fixes, more changes are needed
Ingo, Peter. Unless I missed something, with or without these patches the TASK_WAKING logic in do_fork() is very broken. - do_fork() clears PF_STARTING and then calls wake_up_new_task() which finally does s/WAKING/RUNNING. But. Nobody can take rq->lock in between. This means a signal from irq (qui... 15 Mar 2010 05:42
[PATCH 3/6] move_task_off_dead_cpu: remove retry logic
The previous patch preserved the retry logic, but it looks unneeded. __migrate_task() can only fail if we raced with migration after we dropped the lock, but in this case the caller of set_cpus_allowed/etc must initiate migration itself if ->on_rq == T. We already fixed p->cpus_allowed, the changes in active/on... 15 Mar 2010 05:42
[PATCH] serial: fix possible imx deadlock
This patch fixes a possible deadlock situation with the port and timer locks. The calling paths for the deadlock situation are: 1. imx_set_termios() -> LOCK(port.lock) -> del_timer_sync() -> LOCK(timer.base.lock) 2. run_timer_softirq() -> LOCK(timer.base.lock) -> imx_timeout() -> LOCK(port.lock) ... 15 Mar 2010 05:42

[patch] dpt_i20: several use after free issues
adpt_i2o_delete_hba() calls kfree() so we have to save "pHba->next" before calling it. Also inside adpt_i2o_delete_hba() itself, there was another use after free bug which I fixed by moving the kfree() down a line.
