Subject: [PATCH] Cross Memory Attach v4
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 27th July 2011 03:23:42 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Hi Andrew,

Here's an updated version of the Cross Memory Attach patch. Changes
since the v3:

- Adds x86_64 specific wire up
- Changes behaviour so process_vm_readv and process_vm_writev return
  the number of bytes successfully read or written even if an error
  occurs
- Adds more kernel doc interface comments 
- rename of some internal functions (process_vm_rw_check_iovecs, 
  process_vm_rw) so they make more sense. 

Still need to do benchmarking to see if the optimisation for small
copies using a local on-stack array in process_vm_rw_core is worth it. 

Regards,

Chris
