Subject: [patch 0/5] futex: Plug a pi_state leak and clarify the refcounting
Date: Sat, 19 Dec 2015 20:07:37 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20151219200501.563704646@linutronix.de> (raw)

A recent patch claimed that there is a double free in the requeue_pi
code, which is not the case.

While analysing the issue I found the contrary, i.e. a leak. This
series fixes the leak and clarifies the code so it's more clear how
that refcounting on the pi state works.

Thanks,

	tglx
