tracing: Make the documentation clear on trace_event boot option
Going through old email, I came across this. Looks like it was never applied, I'll pull it in. I think I was on vacation when this was received, and got lost it the masses. Sorry for the --very-- late response. -- Steve On Mon, 2009-12-21 at 14:27 +0800, Li Zefan wrote: Make it clear that event-list is ... 4 May 2010 16:49
[PATCH tip/core/rcu 05/48] rcu: ignore offline CPUs in last non-dyntick-idle CPU check
From: Lai Jiangshan <laijs(a)> Offline CPUs are not in nohz_cpu_mask, but can be ignored when checking for the last non-dyntick-idle CPU. This patch therefore only checks online CPUs for not being dyntick idle, allowing fast entry into full-system dyntick-idle state even when there are some offline C... 4 May 2010 16:49
[PATCH tip/core/rcu 12/48] rcu: enable CPU_STALL_VERBOSE by default
The CPU_STALL_VERBOSE kernel configuration parameter was added to 2.6.34 to identify any preempted/blocked tasks that were preventing the current grace period from completing when running preemptible RCU. As is conventional for new configurations parameters, this defaulted disabled. It is now time to enable it by... 4 May 2010 16:49

[PATCH tip/core/rcu 29/48] rcu: add an rcu_dereference_index_check()
The sparse RCU-pointer checking relies on type magic that dereferences the pointer in question. This does not work if the pointer is in fact an array index. This commit therefore supplies a new RCU API that omits the sparse checking to continue to support rcu_dereference() on integers. Signed-off-by: Paul E. M... 4 May 2010 16:49

Cannot create NETLINK_NFLOG sockets
Hello there, I have just stumbled upon a rather strange problem... It seems whenever a program on my system tries to create a netlink socket of the NETLINK_NFLOG type, the call fails with a "protocol not supported" error. Having first encountered this trying to get ulogd running for the iptables NFLOG target, I ... 4 May 2010 16:49
