Right. lock_kernel() is not needed (was copy/paste). The deadlock is avoided by not calling wait_for_completion() when the code is executed by th... 23 Apr 2010 17:48

[PATCH] Enable pvclock flags in vcpu_time_info structure
This patch removes one padding byte and transform it into a flags field. New versions of guests using pvclock will query these flags upon each read. Flags, however, will only be interpreted when the guest decides to. It uses the pvclock_valid_flags function to signal that a specific set of flags should be taken ... 23 Apr 2010 17:43

[PATCH]: Fix deadlock in USBIP driver (staging), linux-2.6.34-rc5
Hi, When detaching a port from the client side (usbip --detach 0), the event thread, on the server side, is going to deadlock. The "eh" server thread is getting USBIP_EH_RESET event and calls: -> stub_device_reset() -> usb_reset_device() the USB framework is then calling back _in the same "eh" thread_ : -> st... 23 Apr 2010 17:42

[PATCH 0/5] Add second memory region for crash kernel
Patch applies to 2.6.34-rc5 On x86 platform, even if hardware is 64-bit capable, kernel starts execution in 32-bit mode. When system is kdump-enabled, crashed kernel switches to 32 bit mode and jumps into new kernel. This automatically limits location of dump-capture kernel image and it's initrd by first 4Gb of ... 23 Apr 2010 17:42
