SubjectRe: 2.6.23-mm1 - list_add corruption in cgroup
Hello !

While polling the contents of a cgroup task file, I caught the
following corruption. Is there a known race (and a fix) or should
I start digging ?

the program running in the cgroup is fork/exec intensive:

while (1) {
int i, s;

for (i = 0; i < count; i++)
if (fork() == 0)
execlp("/bin/true", "true", 0);

for (i = 0; i < count; i++)
wait(&s);
}

Thanks for any insights,

C.



list_add corruption. next->prev should be prev (ffffffff80a3f338), but was 0000000000200200. (next=ffff810103dcbe90).
