Andrew Morton: Linux 2.6.5-rc2-mm5

Mar 29, 2004, 12:59 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Andrew Morton)

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.5-rc2/2.6.5-rc2-mm5/

  • A fairly small update. Mainly attempting to stabilise the CPU scheduler changes.
  • A patch here which will hopefully fix the oopses which a few people have seen in the NFS server code.
  • The pestiferous SMP oops in vt_ioctl() is back, and I really fixed it this time. I've a suspicion that the kernel used to have the right locking in place, but someone removed it because of some deadlock. If your kernel does appear to deadlock, please include a sysrq-T trace in the report.

Changes since 2.6.5-rc2-mm4:
