Subject: [PATCH] fs, proc: remove priv argument from is_stack
Date: Fri, 28 Jul 2017 09:58:33 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Michal Hocko <>

b18cb64ead40 ("fs/proc: Stop trying to report thread stacks") has
removed the priv parameter user in is_stack so the argument is
redundant. Drop it.

Signed-off-by: Michal Hocko <>
I have sent this trivial cleanup earlier when we were discussing stack
gap issue and it seemed to fall between cracks. I have just rebased it
on top of the current mmotm tree. It is a trivial cleanup. I was also
considering to move it out of task_{no}mmu.c and do a generic helper out
of it but then I just thought it might be more confusing than helpful
so I kept it there with their only users.
