Hi,

I posted 2 patches to fix kernel panic and memory leak.
http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/2/14/282
http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/2/14/283

But, I think this patch is better than old ones.

From: Hiroshi Shimamoto <h-shimamoto@ct.jp.nec.com>

Reading /proc/<pid>/latency or /proc/<pid>/task/<tid>/latency could cause
NULL pointer dereference.

In lstats_open(), get_proc_task() can return NULL, in which case the kernel
will oops at lstats_show_proc() because m->private is NULL.

This can be reproduced by the follwoing script.
while :
do
	bash -c 'ls > ls.$$' &
	pid=$!
	cat /proc/$pid/latency &
	cat /proc/$pid/latency &
	cat /proc/$pid/latency &
	cat /proc/$pid/latency
done

And the task struct which gotten by get_proc_task() is never put.
put_task_struct() should be called.

This patch changes the private is used to store inode, and the task struct
will be gotten and putted in read or write function.

Hi Ingo,

I'd like to be applied new patch for latencytop fix.
I think it better than old ptaches.

Can you apply this patch for latencytop issues?
http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/2/14/451

It's replacement of old patches you applied.
It makes latency file behavior same as other proc files.
get_proc_task() and put_task_struct() are called at read time,
and returns -ESRCH if get_proc_task() failed.

If is there any problem, please let me know.

thanks,
Hiroshi Shimamoto

Hi Ingo,

Here is a delta patch against sched-devel.git tree.

These two patches in sched-devel.git tree fix the issues.
latencytop: fix kernel panic while reading latency proc file
latencytop: fix memory leak on latency proc file

However, this is more appropriate way to fix, I think.

From: Hiroshi Shimamoto <h-shimamoto@ct.jp.nec.com>

Change getting task_struct by get_proc_task() at read or write time,
and returns -ESRCH if get_proc_task() returns NULL.
This is same behavior as other /proc files.
