[PATCH 3/3] vfs: O_* bit numbers uniqueness check fix 2
Follow the comment by Andreas: It's non-obvious why there are 18 flags listed here, but the hweight is only 17? Presumably this is because O_RDONLY has value 0, but that should at least be listed in a comment, or the test could be written more explicitly, like: BUILD_BUG_ON(18 - 1 /* for O_RDONLY bein... 15 Mar 2010 21:50
TuxOnIce 3.1
Hi all. Almost a year since TuxOnIce 3.0 was announced, I'm pleased to announce a 3.1 release. In the intervening period, lots of work has been done on the code. The major new features are: - Support for LZO compression (deflate will also work, but it's slooow!) - New sysfs entry making the sys_sync call ... 15 Mar 2010 21:50

[PATCH tip/core/rcu] rcu: make rcu_read_lock_bh_held() allow for disabled BH
Disabling BH can stand in for rcu_read_lock_bh(), and this patch updates rcu_read_lock_bh_held() to allow for this. In order to avoid include-file hell, this function is moved out of line to kernel/rcupdate.c.

[PATCH v3] perf: Fix unexported generic perf_arch_fetch_caller_regs
perf_arch_fetch_caller_regs() is exported for the overriden x86 version, but not for the generic weak version. As a general rule, weak functions should not have their symbol exported in the same file they are defined. So let's export it on trace_event_perf.c as it is used by trace events only. This fixes: E... 15 Mar 2010 20:42
