  • [$] How to contribute to kernel documentation
    par corbet le 23/01/2020 à 11:13

    Some years back, I was caught in a weak moment and somehow became the kernel documentation maintainer.

  • [$] process_madvise(), pidfd capabilities, and the revenge of the PIDs
    par corbet le 21/01/2020 à 12:52

    Once upon a time, there were few ways for one process to operate upon another after its creation; sending signals and ptrace() were about it.
