Patches 1-12 of http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg26592.html
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
Need more details about what's actually changing, what testing has been done,
what testing still needs to be done and business impact of these patches.
These patches did a number of things. Trying to recall the first set corrected
2 panics and a mislabeling problem. The performance set changed a fair bit of
locking to lower the overhead associated with both labeled and more importantly
to lower the overhead of the unlabled case. The third patch set just was code
cleanup to bring NetLabel in line with upstream and to include infrastructure
for future work.
All of these patches were tested by HP as a part of the LSPP effort to verify
they solved all of the known issues (at that time) with regards to
netlabel/CIPSO. The "bugs" set of patches is absolutly required for LSPP to
complete. The performance wasn't absolutly required but it makes things more
palatable. the cleanup was just that and didn't need any new testing.
Closing out, as this kernel has been in a couple of official builds now.
