SubjectRe: [PATCH] Re: today's futex changes
Date
In message <Pine.LNX.4.44.0309061723160.1470-100000@localhost.localdomain> you write:
> While here, please let's also fix the get_futex_key VM_NONLINEAR

OK, I've updated my patch on top of this. Mainly cosmetic, please
review.

Name: Minor Tweaks To Jamie Lokier's Futex Patch
Author: Rusty Russell
Status: Booted on 2.6.0-test4-bk9
Depends: Misc/futex-hugh.patch.gz

D: Minor changes to Jamie's excellent futex patch.
D: 1) Remove obsolete comment above hash array decl.
D: 2) Semantics of futex on read-only pages unclear: require write perm.
D: 3) Clarify comment about TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE.
D: 4) Andrew Morton says spurious wakeup is a bug. Catch it.
D: 5) Use Jenkins hash.
