Subject: [PATCH 0/6 v2] fsnotify: Fix list corruption for permission events
Date: Tue, 13 Sep 2016 22:15:05 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)


this is a second version of the series to fix the list corruption for
fanotify permission events Miklos has reported. Since V1 I have addressed
Miklos' and Lino's comments added some tags and also added patches fixing
the false WARN_ON Miklos has spotted during his review.

I think the first two patches are good to go - Andrew, can you please merge
them. For the other four (fixing the theoretical barrier issue), I'd prefer
to get some review.
