Subject: [patch 0/3] 2.6.20 fix for PageUptodate memorder problem (try 2)
Date: Thu,  8 Feb 2007 14:26:59 +0100 (CET)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Still no independent confirmation as to whether this is a problem or not.
Updated some comments, added diffstats to patches, don't use __SetPageUptodate
as an internal page-flags.h private function.

I would like to eventually get an ack from Hugh regarding the anon memory
and especially swap side of the equation, and a glance from whoever put the
smp_wmb()s into the copy functions (Was it Ben H or Anton maybe?)
