Subject: [PATCH RESEND] slub: Remove userspace notifier for cache add/remove
Date: Thu, 23 Apr 2020 13:57:21 +0200
Message-ID: <20200423115721.19821-1-mkoutny@suse.com> (raw)

From: Christoph Lameter <cl@linux.com>

I came across some unnecessary uevents once again which reminded me
this. The patch seems to be lost in the leaves of the original
discussion [1], so resending.

8<---
Kmem caches are internal kernel structures so it is strange that
userspace notifiers would be needed. And I am not aware of any use
of these notifiers. These notifiers may just exist because in the
initial slub release the sysfs code was copied from another
subsystem.
