      This address is going to be obsolete, so I should update it.

      [TG3]: 40-bit DMA workaround part 2 · 4a29cc2e
      Michael Chan authored
      The 40-bit DMA workaround recently implemented for 5714, 5715, and
      5780 needs to be expanded because there may be other tg3 devices
      behind the EPB Express to PCIX bridge in the 5780 class device.
      For example, some 4-port card or mother board designs have 5704 behind
      the 5714.
      All devices behind the EPB require the 40-bit DMA workaround.
      Thanks to Chris Elmquist again for reporting the problem and testing
      the patch.

      [AX.25]: Fix potencial memory hole. · c7c694d1
      Ralf Baechle DL5RB authored
      If the AX.25 dialect chosen by the sysadmin is set to DAMA master / 3
      (or DAMA slave / 2, if CONFIG_AX25_DAMA_SLAVE=n) ax25_kick() will fall
      through the switch statement without calling ax25_send_iframe() or any
      other function that would eventually free skbn thus leaking the packet.
      Fix by restricting the sysctl inferface to allow only actually supported
      AX.25 dialects.
      The system administration mistake needed for this to happen is rather
      unlikely, so this is an uncritical hole.
      Coverity #651.

      [NET]: Fix race condition in sk_wait_event(). · 265a9285
      Alexey Kuznetsov authored
      It is broken, the condition is checked out of socket lock. It is
      wonderful the bug survived for so long time.

        race condition in tcp_sendmsg when connection became established ]

      [PATCH] fix free swap cache latency · 6f5e6b9e
      Hugh Dickins authored
      Lee Revell reported 28ms latency when process with lots of swapped memory
      2.6.15 introduced a latency regression when unmapping: in accounting the
      zap_work latency breaker, pte_none counted 1, pte_present PAGE_SIZE, but a
      swap entry counted nothing at all.  We think of pages present as the slow
      case, but Lee's trace shows that free_swap_and_cache's radix tree lookup
      can make a lot of work - and we could have been doing it many thousands of
      times without a latency break.
      Move the zap_work update up to account swap entries like pages present.
      This does account non-linear pte_file entries, and unmap_mapping_range
      skipping over swap entries, by the same amount even though they're quick:
      but neither of those cases deserves complicating the code (and they're
      treated no worse than they were in 2.6.14).

      [PATCH] kbuild: fix buffer overflow in modpost · 7670f023
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      Jiri Benc <jbenc@suse.cz> reported that modpost would stop with SIGABRT if
      used with long filepaths.
      The error looked like:
      >   Building modules, stage 2.
      >   MODPOST
      > *** glibc detected *** scripts/mod/modpost: realloc(): invalid next size:
      +0x0809f588 ***
      > [...]
      Fix this by allocating at least the required memory + SZ bytes each time.
      Before we sometimes ended up allocating too little memory resuting in the
      glibc detected bug above.  Based on patch originally submitted by: Jiri
