rtc: rtc-max6900: SMBus support.

[PATCH 22/40] mips,kgdb: kdb low level trap catch and stack trace
The only way the debugger can handle a trap in inside rcu_lock, notify_die, or atomic_notifier_call_chain without a recursive fault is to have a low level "first opportunity handler" do_trap_or_bp() handler. Generally this will be something the vast majority of folks will not need, but for those who need it, it i... 14 Jan 2010 11:16
Commit c4caa778157dbbf04116f0ac2111e389b5cd7a29 broke SYSV SHM for NOMMU by taking away the pointer to shm_get_unmapped_area() from shm_file_operations. Put it back conditionally on CONFIG_MMU=n. file->f_ops->get_unmapped_area() is used to find out the base address for a mapping of a mappable chardev device or ... 14 Jan 2010 10:08
[PATCH 3/6] NOMMU: Remove a superfluous check of vm_region::vm_usage
In split_vma(), there's no need to check if the VMA being split has a region that's in use by more than one VMA because: (1) The preceding test prohibits splitting of non-anonymous VMAs and regions (eg: file or chardev backed VMAs). (2) Anonymous regions can't be mapped multiple times because there's no ... 14 Jan 2010 10:08

OOM-Killer kills too much with
Hi, since kernel (also tried I get a lot of oom-killer kills when I do hard disk intensive tasks (mainly in VirtualBox which is running Windows XP) and IMHO it kills processes even if I have a lot of free memory. Is this a known bug? I have self compiled kernel so I can try patches. ... 27 Jan 2010 07:02
