[PATCH] mm: move sys_mmap_pgoff from util.c
Move sys_mmap_pgoff() from mm/util.c to mm/mmap.c and mm/nommu.c, where we'd expect to find such code: especially now that it contains the MAP_HUGETLB handling. Revert mm/util.c to how it was in 2.6.32. This patch just ignores MAP_HUGETLB in the nommu case, as in 2.6.32, whereas 2.6.33-rc2 reported -ENOSYS. Per... 30 Dec 2009 15:22

Unprivileged: Disable raising of privileges
Eric, I'm not clear why capabilities need to be manipulated by this feature (the pure capability support already has a feature for disabling privilege and blocking unsafe, or insufficient privilege, execution). Perhaps I'm just unclear what features can be more safely enabled with this in effect - that is, you... 3 Jan 2010 20:28
BFS v0.313 CPU scheduler for 2.6.32
A stupid mismerge in __might_sleep meant that with the right config options dmesg would have been swamped with false warnings. This also was making BFS consume a lot of CPU under certain conditions in combination with preempt RCU. Thanks to Jayson R King for picking it up! There are no other changes in this ve... 30 Dec 2009 16:29

regression: crash from 'ls /sys/modules/wl1251_spi/notes'
Hello, I noticed weird crashes related to wl1251_spi notes sysfs directory with current wireless-testing (2.6.33-rc2 plus some wireless patches). The simplest way to reproduce the problem is to do this on a nokia n900 (arm/omap 3430): # ls /sys/module/wl1251_spi/notes/ [ 4776.503234] Unable to handle kernel N... 6 Jan 2010 09:05
