Subject: [PATCH 2.6.24-rc8-mm1 14/15] (RFC) IPC/semaphores: prepare semundo code to work on another task than current
Date: Tue, 29 Jan 2008 17:02:43 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080129162232.843976550@bull.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20080129160229.612172683@bull.net>

[-- Attachment #1: ipc_prepare_semundo_write.patch --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 5670 bytes --]

From: Pierre Peiffer <pierre.peiffer@bull.net>

In order to modify the semundo-list of a task from procfs, we must be able to
work on any target task.
But all the existing code playing with the semundo-list, currently works
only on the 'current' task, and does not allow to specify any target task.

This patch changes all these routines to allow them to work on a specified
task, passed in parameter, instead of current.

This is mainly a preparation for the semundo_write() operation, on the
/proc/<pid>/semundo file, as provided in the next patch.
