Subject: Re: [PATCH v1] mm/madvise: report SIGBUS as -EFAULT for MADV_POPULATE_(READ|WRITE)
Date: Fri, 30 Jul 2021 14:23:51 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <dfd5ee42-0789-4373-4e1b-f6e902a80230@redhat.com> (raw)

Hi Andrew,

sorry for not CCing you, absolutely no clue why I accidentally dropped 
you. Can you give this patch a churn? It would be great if we could get 
that into 5.14, so we don't have to deal with differing behavior between 
Linux versions.

Cheers!
