Commit e97e7120eb24800cf8eb62c7da07b161cc2a8c73, by Linus Torvalds
9 years 7 months kgdb: don't needlessly skip PAGE_USER test for Fsl booke

The bypassing of this test is a leftover from 2.4 vintage
kernels, and is no longer appropriate, or even used by KGDB.
Currently KGDB uses probe_kernel_write() for all access to
memory via the KGDB core, so it can simply be deleted.

This fixes CVE-2010-1446.

9 years 7 months xfs: add a shrinker to background inode reclaim

On low memory boxes or those with highmem, kernel can OOM before the
background reclaims inodes via xfssyncd. Add a shrinker to run inode
reclaim so that it inode reclaim is expedited when memory is low.

This is more complex than it needs to be because the VM folk don't
want a context added to the shrinker infrastructure. Hence we need
to add a global list of XFS mount structures so the shrinker can
traverse them.

9 years 7 months fs: fs/super.c needs to include backing-dev.h for !CONFIG_BLOCK

When CONFIG_BLOCK is set, it ends up getting backing-dev.h included.
But for !CONFIG_BLOCK, it isn't so lucky. The proper thing to do is
include <linux/backing-dev.h> directly from the file it's used from,
so do that.

The pktcdvd driver uses proper locking and does not need the BKL in the
ioctl and llseek functions of the character device, so kill both.

Moving the compat_ioctl handling from common code into the driver itself
fixes build problems when CONFIG_BLOCK is disabled.

9 years 7 months nfs d_revalidate() is too trigger-happy with d_drop()

If dentry found stale happens to be a root of disconnected tree, we
can't d_drop() it; its d_hash is actually part of s_anon and d_drop()
would simply hide it from shrink_dcache_for_umount(), leading to
all sorts of fun, including busy inodes on umount and oopsen after
that.

Bug had been there since at least 2006 (commit c636eb already has it),
so it's definitely -stable fodder.
