[PATCH 2/2] virtio-net: pass gfp to add_buf
virtio-net bounces buffer allocations off to a thread if it can't allocate buffers from the atomic pool. However, if posting buffers still requires atomic buffers, this is unlikely to succeed. Fix by passing in the proper gfp_t parameter. Signed-off-by: Michael S. Tsirkin <mst(a)redhat.com> --- drivers/net/virt... 30 Apr 2010 15:08
mm,migration: Avoid race between shift_arg_pages() and rmap_walk() during migration by not migrating temporary stacks
Hi Mel, did you see my proposed fix? I'm running with it applied, I'd be interested if you can test it.

Note: we can do more cleanups with this change and kill EXPORT_SYMBOLs, almost any function which currently uses keventd_wq can become the trivial inline. Signed-off-by: Oleg N... 30 Apr 2010 15:08

[PATCH 7/8] padata: Flush the padata queues actively
yield was used to wait until all references of the internal control structure in use are dropped before it is freed.
