Subject: [patch 22/27] quicklist: Set tlb->need_flush if pages are remaining in quicklist 0
Date: Fri, 1 Feb 2008 16:21:03 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080202002103.GW8368@suse.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20080202001927.GA8368@suse.de>

[-- Attachment #1: quicklist-set-tlb-need_flush-if-pages-are-remaining-in-quicklist-0.patch --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 1308 bytes --]

2.6.22-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------

From: Christoph Lameter <clameter@sgi.com>

patch 421d99193537a6522aac2148286f08792167d5fd in mainline.

This ensures that the quicklists are drained. Otherwise draining may only
occur when the processor reaches an idle state.

Fixes fatal leakage of pgd_t's on 2.6.22 and later.
