Subject[UPDATE] Zerocopy patch of the day...

In the usual spot:

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/davem/zerocopy-2.4.1-2.diff.gz

Changes:

1) Merge in 3c59x update from Andrew Morton. I hope Andrew won't
mind if people who see problems due to these changes at least
CC: him on bug reports? :-)

2) Correct receive buffer space checks during direct user
copies.

3) Correct returning of errors in datagram wait_for_packet(),
cures DoS discovered with AF_UNIX sockets.

And yes, before Mr. Wedgewood asks, the generic fixes (#2 and
#3) will be sent to Linus seperately when he returns from NYC.
:-)

I will soon start keeping a real ChangeLog.zerocopy file going at the
same place you get the patches from.

Later,
David S. Miller
