Kernel stack sizes are configurable.
UML will build as a shared binary if tt mode is configured out. These
two changes, plus some valgrind fixes, make it possible to valgrind the kernel.
skas mode will now force a shutdown if the kernel thread receives a
SIGINT, SIGTERM, or SIGHUP.
The watchdog driver compiles with skas enabled
Fixed a problem with excessive stack usage which was causing
crashes for some people
SA_SIGINFO signal delivery is fixed, making JVMs (and Tomcat) run
skas mode now has protection against tmpfs filling up
The initial UML thread is protected against running kernel code
A couple of data corruption bugs are fixed, including one which
would cause strange behavior changes when 'debug' is added to the command
All initializers are converted to C99 syntax
NOTE - this patch will not apply to stock 2.5.53. It was generated against
Linus' BK from yesterday (Dec 29). It will probably apply cleanly to any
2.5.53 after my last set of updates were merged. It certainly will not apply
to any kernel earlier than that.
The 2.5.53-2 UML patch is available at
