    Subject[PATCH 2.6.17-rc6 0/9] Kernel memory leak detector 0.7
    Date
    This is a new version (0.7) of the kernel memory leak detector. See
    the Documentation/kmemleak.txt file for a more detailed
    description. The patches are downloadable from (the bundled patch or
    the series):

    http://homepage.ntlworld.com/cmarinas/kmemleak/patch-2.6.17-rc6-kmemleak-0.7.bz2
    http://homepage.ntlworld.com/cmarinas/kmemleak/patches-kmemleak-0.7.tar.bz2

    What's new in this version:

    - different configuration options added for tweaking kmemleak
    - reduced the length of time running with interrupts disabled (the
    interrupts are now only disabled for individual memory block
    scanning rather than for the whole memory)
    - fixed bug in the memleak_seq_* functions (pointer structure accessed
    after freeing)
    - more false positives ignored

    To do:

    - more testing
    - more investigation into the task stacks scanning
    - NUMA support
    - (support for ioremap tracking)

    Many thanks to Michal Piotrowski for stress-testing kmemleak and
    reporting various issues.
