2006-12-07[PATCH] Fix the size limit of compat space msgsizesuzuki1-16/+7
Currently we allocate 64k space on the user stack and use it the msgbuf for sys_{msgrcv,msgsnd} for compat and the results are later copied in user [ by copy_in_user]. This patch introduces helper routines for sys_{msgrcv,msgsnd} as below: do_msgsnd() : Accepts the mtype and user space ptr to the buffer along with the msqid and msgflg. do_msgrcv() : Accepts a kernel space ptr to mtype and a userspace ptr to the buffer. The mtype has to be copied back the user space msgbuf by the caller. These changes avoid the need to allocate the msgsize on the userspace ( thus removing the size limt ) and the overhead of an extra copy_in_user().

2006-03-26[PATCH] sem2mutex: ipc, id.semIngo Molnar1-1/+1
Semaphore to mutex conversion. The conversion was generated via scripts, and the result was validated automatically via a script as well.

2005-09-07[PATCH] compat: be more consistent about [ug]id_tStephen Rothwell1-6/+6
When I first wrote the compat layer patches, I was somewhat cavalier about the definition of compat_uid_t and compat_gid_t (or maybe I just misunderstood :-)). This patch makes the compat types much more consistent with the types we are being compatible with and hopefully will fix a few bugs along the way. compat type type in compat arch __compat_[ug]id_t __kernel_[ug]id_t __compat_[ug]id32_t __kernel_[ug]id32_t compat_[ug]id_t [ug]id_t The difference is that compat_uid_t is always 32 bits (for the archs we care about) but __compat_uid_t may be 16 bits on some.

2005-07-07[PATCH] put_compat_shminfo() warning fixJesse Millan1-0/+1
GCC 4 complains because the function put_compat_shminfo() can't get to its return statement if there is no error... If the function does not return -EFAULT, it doesn't return anything at all. Looks like a typo.
