Using GFP_ATOMIC is not a good idea, because the kernel needs the GFP_ATOMIC pools for allocation that take place from really atomic contexts such as interruption handlers for instance. fork should not be an atomic context. So the only reason I see why you propose this patch is because you are in a hurry. Ok, before we fix this properly, you can use GFP_ATOMIC locally, but please do not make this an official patch. -- Gilles Chanteperdrix _______________________________________________ Xenomai-core mailing list Xenomaiemail@example.com https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/xenomai-core
