Well, you (or someone who might wish to help) need to investigate how Andrea's patches set and use current->map_base and adjust my version of the TASK_UNMAPPED_BASE macro accordingly. Unfortunately, the lack of time is really bad here. If I were to do this patch merging myself, that would be unfair to all those waiting for me to do lots of other things I have postponed, including some related to these patches. > Any sugestions/pointers would be much appreciated :) > And please forgive me if it is not appropriate for > this mailing list, I really dont know of anywhere else > to ask. There's currently no mailing list for just these kernel patches. I generally provide some support via private e-mail, but merging with other unofficial patches is beyond it (I answer relevant questions on my code, but that's about it). Possibly I should in fact create a dedicated mailing list for the patches. -- /sd
