Changelog for uml-patch-2.4.20-7.bz2

Release Date : Aug 7 2003

Released By : jdike

  • Added the start of a standalone COW driver and cleaned up the code a bit to make it more separable.
  • Added an mconsole 'log' command, which dumps a bunch of text into the printk log.
  • Improved some error messages, particularly the one that happens when UML gets a ridiculously small amount of memory.
  • Added a 'd' option to the 'ubdx=' switch, which makes it treat a COW file as normal data rather than a COW layer.
  • To close a file descriptor leak, unix sockets are now set FD_CLOEXEC.
  • Removed trap type 13 from the fixable segfault types since I can't see how to make it happen.
  • Made the tty logging code pluggable, so a non-UML kernel can specify its own output routines.
  • Added IFF_NO_PI to the TAP flags in the TUN/TAP driver, which causes the host to stop adding stuff to frames that go through the device.
