|Date:||Sun, 11 Jun 2006 12:18:15 +0100|
This is a new version (0.7) of the kernel memory leak detector. See the Documentation/kmemleak.txt file for a more detailed description. The patches are downloadable from (the bundled patch or the series): http://homepage.ntlworld.com/cmarinas/kmemleak/patch-2.6.... http://homepage.ntlworld.com/cmarinas/kmemleak/patches-km... What's new in this version: - different configuration options added for tweaking kmemleak - reduced the length of time running with interrupts disabled (the interrupts are now only disabled for individual memory block scanning rather than for the whole memory) - fixed bug in the memleak_seq_* functions (pointer structure accessed after freeing) - more false positives ignored To do: - more testing - more investigation into the task stacks scanning - NUMA support - (support for ioremap tracking) Many thanks to Michal Piotrowski for stress-testing kmemleak and reporting various issues. -- Catalin - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a message to firstname.lastname@example.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html Please read the FAQ at http://www.tux.org/lkml/
