SubjectRe: v3.4-rc2 out-of-memory problems (was Re: 3.4-rc1 sticks-and-crashs)
Rik van Riel :
To avoid misunderstandings, that improvement is WITH /
INCLUDING the patch suggested by D.R and L.T., namely:
put + free_task(task); after line 78 in subroutine
lowmemorykiller.c . At least phenomenologically, it
looks that it resolved the problem
I dont understanding so much about programming and about
the problem (and "android" is neither running on my own
computer nor on my coffee-machine, but I enable everything
just because I don't know what hardware have the people
which use my distro and compiled kernels) so that I don't
understand all details of the discusion, but if people
come to an agreement what I could test further, one can
mail it me and explain it me slowly, then I test it out.
