2006-04-19[PATCH] Kconfig.debug: Set DEBUG_MUTEX to off by defaultTim Chen
DEBUG_MUTEX flag is on by default in current kernel configuration. During performance testing, we saw mutex debug functions like mutex_debug_check_no_locks_freed (called by kfree()) is expensive as it goes through a global list of memory areas with mutex lock and do the checking. For benchmarks such as Volanomark and Hackbench, we have seen more than 40% drop in performance on some platforms. We suggest to set DEBUG_MUTEX off by default. Or at least do that later when we feel that the mutex changes in the current code have stabilized.

2006-04-19[PATCH] Fix file lookup without refDipankar Sarma
There are places in the kernel where we look up files in fd tables and access the file structure without holding refereces to the file. So, we need special care to avoid the race between looking up files in the fd table and tearing down of the file in another CPU. Otherwise, one might see a NULL f_dentry or such torn down version of the file. This patch fixes those special places where such a race may happen.

2006-04-19[PATCH] uml: change sigjmp_buf to jmp_bufJeff Dike
Clean up the jmpbuf code. Since softints, we no longer use sig_setjmp, so the UML_SIGSETJMP wrapper now has a misleading name. Also, I forgot to change the buffers from sigjmp_buf to jmp_buf.
