Subject: [PATCH v2 6/8] lib/syscall: Pin the task stack in collect_syscall()
Date: Thu, 15 Sep 2016 22:45:47 -0700
Message-ID: <0bfd8e6d4729c97745d3781a29610a33d0a8091d.1474003868.git.luto@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1474003868.git.luto@kernel.org>
In-Reply-To: <cover.1474003868.git.luto@kernel.org>

This will avoid a potential read-after-free if collect_syscall()
(e.g. /proc/PID/syscall) is called on an exiting task.
