[PATCH 2/3] p9auth: add CAP_GRANT_ID to authorize use of /dev/caphash
Granting userid capabilities to another task is a dangerous privilege. Don't just let file permissions authorize it. Define CAP_GRANT_ID as a new capability needed to write to /dev/caphash. For one thing this lets us start a factotum server early on in init, then have init drop CAP_GRANT_ID from its bounding s... 27 Apr 2010 17:55

sound/core/timer.c: inconsistent lock state reported for tu->qlock
Hi, I got the following log from a rarely used PC that I just updated from 2.6.34-rc4 to 2.6.34-rc5. I don't know though under which kernel I last used the soundcard of it; could have been 2.6.33, could have been a ..34-rc.

[ANNOUNCE] upstart 0.6.6 released
The main change in this release is that Upstart now takes care of mounting /proc and /sys on boot in the case where they haven't already been mounted by an initramfs or initrd. This corrects the long-running "chicken and egg" due to Upstart's use of /proc/self/fd to execute shell code, and allows Upstart to use /s... 27 Apr 2010 16:47
[GIT PULL] block/writeback bits for 2.6.34-rc
Hi Linus, Here are the fixes for the file systems that were missing a bdi setup and assignment for proper flushing. As a proof of concept, I also "converted" btrfs to use the bdi_setup_and_register() helper since I use that on the laptop. Also included are two minor fixes for drbd, and a fix for a very unlike... 27 Apr 2010 16:47

[PATCH:resend] rt: Remove CONFIG_STACK_TRACER from DEBUG_COUNT, and fix reminder block
This fix does two things. 1. It reverts commit 3e39399ef4a742d994570488994be93ef17d4ef5. - The above commit added back a warning about CONFIG_STACK_TRACER NOT because the warning was necessary but to fix-up a problem where you could get an empty REMINDER block in the demg. However, CONFIG_STACK_TRACER really s... 27 Apr 2010 15:38
