    SubjectRe: [PATCH -mm 1/3] proc: get_nr_threads() doesn't need ->siglock any longer
    Date
    Acked-by: Roland McGrath <roland@redhat.com>

    I'm not entirely sure about the name, but it's probably fine. There should
    be some comments somewhere making clear what "nr" or kind of threads this
    refers to. This is threads created and not yet reaped. It differs from
    the "threads not yet exited" (signal->live) count only during some races
    around exit time, and when ptrace is preventing self-reaping.


    Thanks,
    Roland
