Since 042stab056.11:

  • rebase to RHEL6.2 kernel-2.6.32-220.23.1.el6 kernel (security and bug fixes, see below)
  • Note that CONFIG_OPENVSWITCH is not set in this kernel
  • [fuse] fuse_flush() must wait till writeback is completed (PSBM-13697)
  • [fuse] synchronous close has been reimplemented
  • [fuse] file size handling has been corrected (PSBM-13216)
  • [ubc/net] potential infinite loop fixed in case network code
  • [pid namespaces] missing BSD_PROCESS_ACCT ifdef added. Required to compile kernel without CONFIG_BSD_PROCESS_ACCT kernel option (#2273)
  • [fairsched] vmstat floating point operation fixed: idle scaling has been enhanced once again (PCLIN-30773)
  • [scheduler] idle time should not be accounted on "possible" but offline cpus
  • [mm] fix a corner case in memory reclaimer - guarantee to invoke OOM in case of no progress (PCLIN-30976)
  • [cpt] Fedora 17 CTs should not migrate to older kernels without mount namespaces support, other CTs should migrate fine (PSBM-13534)
  • [cpt] allow migration of tasks with SCHED_IDLE or SCHED_BATCH scheduler policy set (#2283)
  • [fuse] PCS special files i_size handling has been fixed in case writeback is enabled (PSBM-13636)
  • [pfcache] lockdep false-positive report fixed. The report is false-positive only in case we do not enable pfcache for pfcache cache.
  • [scheduler] compilation without CONFIG_SCHEDSTATS config option fixed (#2299)
