Subject[GIT] writable_limits for 2.6.36
Hello,

please consider the following repository for 2.6.36. It introduces a new
syscall for arch independent resource limits handling. It also adds a
support for runtime limits changing. This feature is needed mostly by
daemons servicing databases and similar service where limits are needed
to be changed without services being restarted on production systems.

The following changes since commit 2f7989efd4398d92b8adffce2e07dd043a0895fe:

Merge master.kernel.org:/home/rmk/linux-2.6-arm (2010-07-14 17:28:13
-0700)

are available in the git repository at:

git://decibel.fi.muni.cz/~xslaby/linux writable_limits

Jiri Slaby (10):
rlimits: security, add task_struct to setrlimit
rlimits: add task_struct to update_rlimit_cpu
rlimits: split sys_setrlimit
rlimits: allow setrlimit to non-current tasks
rlimits: do security check under task_lock
rlimits: add rlimit64 structure
rlimits: redo do_setrlimit to more generic do_prlimit
rlimits: switch more rlimit syscalls to do_prlimit
rlimits: implement prlimit64 syscall
unistd: add __NR_prlimit64 syscall numbers

Oleg Nesterov (2):
