From: Jeff Moyer <jmoyer <at> redhat.com>
Subject: [patch] man-pages: add documentation about the memlock implications of io_setup
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 9th March 2009 15:59:20 UTC (over 7 years ago)
Hi,

This patch, against man-pages-3.19, adds verbiage surrounding the newly
proposed accounting of pinned aio completion ring pages against the
memlock rlimit.  It also fixes up a few references to aio_context_t
(which should be io_context_t).  Sorry for conflating the two, I can
break it apart if needed.

Cheers,
Jeff
