[PATCH 2/2] mm: call complete_vfork_done() after clearing child_tid and flushing rss-counters

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Child should wake ups parent from vfork() only after finishing all operations with
shared mm. There is no sense to use CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID together with CLONE_VFORK,
but it looks more accurate now.
