can: add support for Janz VMOD-ICAN3 Intelligent CAN module
Hello SocketCAN folks, Is there any feedback on this patch? I've waited two weeks without a response to any part of the series. As this is the biggest patch in the series, if you're fine with it, I think the other supporting patches should be fairly uncontroversial. Thanks, Ira On Tue, Mar 02, 2010 at 01:2... 1 Apr 2010 21:20
[PATCH 2/4] exit: change zap_other_threads() to count sub-threads
Change zap_other_threads() to return the number of other sub-threads found on ->thread_group list. Other changes are cosmetic: - change the code to use while_each_thread() helper - remove the obsolete comment about SIGKILL/SIGSTOP Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg(a)> --- include/linux/sche... 17 Mar 2010 15:57
[PATCH 1/4] exit: exit_notify() can trust signal->notify_count < 0
Now that Veaceslav changed copy_signal() to use zalloc(), exit_notify() can just check notify_count < 0 to ensure the execing sub-threads needs the notification from us. No need to do other checks, notify_count != 0 must always mean ->group_exit_task != NULL is waiting for us. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@r... 17 Mar 2010 15:57
[PATCH 0/4] signal_struct->count must die, initial changes
signal_struct->count in its current form must die. - it has no reasons to be atomic_t - it looks like a reference counter, but it is not - otoh, we really need to make task->signal refcountable, just look at the extremely ugly task_rq_unlock_wait() called from __exit_signals(). - we should chang... 17 Mar 2010 15:57
[PATCH 4/4] exit: avoid sig->count in __exit_signal() to detect the group-dead case
Change __exit_signal() to check thread_group_leader() instead of atomic_dec_and_test(&sig->count). This must be equivalent, the group leader must be released only after all other threads have exited and passed __exit_signal(). From now sig->count is not actually used, except in fs/proc for get_nr_threads/etc. ... 17 Mar 2010 15:57
