[PATCH -mm 1/3] proc: get_nr_threads() doesn't need ->siglock any longer
Now that task->signal can't go away get_nr_threads() doesn't need ->siglock to read signal->count. Also, make it inline, move into sched.h, and convert 2 other proc users of signal->count to use this (now trivial) helper. Henceforth get_nr_threads() is the only valid user of signal->count, we are ready to turn... 22 Mar 2010 15:30

[PATCH] Protect device shutdown from hot unplug events.
While device_shutdown() walks through devices_kset to shutdown all devices, device unplug events may race to shutdown individual devices. Specifically, sd_shutdown(), on behalf of fc_starget_delete(), has been observed deleting devices during device_shutdown()'s list traversal. So we factor out list_for_each_entry... 22 Mar 2010 14:13
