kernel ethernet thread doesn't change proc title when device is renamed
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:43:58 EDT
I have a kernel thread in my process table:
845 ? SW 0:00 [eth0]
However, I rename all my ethernet devices - /proc/net/dev shows
lo, fred, joe, sit0, and tun0.
Obviously the kernel thread should change its proc title. :)b
What kernel thread is this? This definitely isn't a kernel problem.
Good question. Looks to be dead by now.
