Description Ted 2011-03-09 16:43:07 UTC
Description of problem:
cgconfig fails to parse due to commas in the conf file

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Problem seen in both: libcgroup-0.35.1-3.fc13, libcgroup-0.36.2-5.fc14 and probably other versions as well.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a line to the config file that uses a comma for the mask.
For example:  cpuset.cpus = 1-3,11;

2. Attempt to start cgconfig

3. Fails due to parse error.
Actual results:
cgconfig fails to start

Expected results:
cgconfig starts successfully

Additional info:
adding a \, to the regular expression on line 35 of lex.l in the libcgroup source fixes it.
