[PATCH 02/10 final] tracepoints: Add check trace callback type
From: Mathieu Desnoyers <mathieu.desnoyers(a)efficios.com> This check is meant to be used by tracepoint users which do a direct cast of callbacks to (void *) for direct registration, thus bypassing the register_trace_##name and unregister_trace_##name checks. This permits to ensure that the callback type matches ... 12 May 2010 12:29

diskstats - sectors written, what does it mean for mmc-cards?
Hi, I have a small arm based server running enterly from an mmc-card.

[PATCH] CacheFiles: Fix error handling in cachefiles_determine_cache_security()
cachefiles_determine_cache_security() is expected to return with a security override in place. However, if set_create_files_as() fails, we fail to do this. In this case, we should just reinstate the security override that was set by the caller. Furthermore, if set_create_files_as() fails, we should dispose of t... 12 May 2010 11:22
