[PATCH 07/10] um: Should hold tasklist_lock while traversing processes

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

Traversing the tasks requires holding tasklist_lock, otherwise it
is unsafe.

p.s. However, I'm not sure that calling os_kill_ptraced_process()
in the atomic context is correct. It seem to work, but please
take a closer look.
