Subject: [GIT PULL] Audit patches for v5.15
Date: Mon, 30 Aug 2021 12:46:55 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Linus,

Two patches in the audit pull request for v5.15; one is trivial
("header protection") but the second is a real patch that fixes a
refcounting problem.  The refcount fix normally would have been sent
up during the -rcX cycle, but since we merged it less than a week
before v5.14 proper I felt it was better to wait for the merge window
to open; the patch is marked with the usual -stable markings.

Both patches pass our tests and merge cleanly against your tree from
earlier this morning, please merge for v5.15.
