[PATCH] disable unshare(CLONE_VM) for now
sys_unshare() does mmput(new_mm). This is not enough if we have mm->core_waiters. This patch is a temporary fix for soon to be released 2.6.16. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> [ Checked with Uli: "I'm not planning to use unshare(CLONE_VM). It's not needed for any functionality planned so far. What we (as in Red Hat) need unshare() for now is the filesystem side." ] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
