      [PATCH] namespaces: utsname: use init_utsname when appropriate · 96b644bd
      Serge E. Hallyn authored
      
      
      In some places, particularly drivers and __init code, the init utsns is the
      appropriate one to use.  This patch replaces those with a the init_utsname
      helper.
      
      Changes: Removed several uses of init_utsname().  Hope I picked all the
      	right ones in net/ipv4/ipconfig.c.  These are now changed to
      	utsname() (the per-process namespace utsname) in the previous
      	patch (2/7)

      [PATCH] usb: fixup usb so it uses struct pid · 2425c08b
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      
      
      The problem with remembering a user space process by its pid is that it is
      possible that the process will exit, pid wrap around will occur.
      Converting to a struct pid avoid that problem, and paves the way for
      implementing a pid namespace.
      
      Also since usb is the only user of kill_proc_info_as_uid rename
      kill_proc_info_as_uid to kill_pid_info_as_uid and have the new version take
      a struct pid.

      [PATCH] const struct tty_operations · b68e31d0
      Jeff Dike authored
      
      
      As part of an SMP cleanliness pass over UML, I consted a bunch of
      structures in order to not have to document their locking.  One of these
      structures was a struct tty_operations.  In order to const it in UML
      without introducing compiler complaints, the declaration of
      tty_set_operations needs to be changed, and then all of its callers need to
      be fixed.
      
      This patch declares all struct tty_operations in the tree as const.  In all
      cases, they are static and used only as input to tty_set_operations.  As an
      extra check, I ran an i386 allyesconfig build which produced no extra
      warnings.
      
      53 drivers are affected.  I checked the history of a bunch of them, and in
      most cases, there have been only a handful of maintenance changes in the
      last six months.  serial_core.c was the busiest one that I looked at.
