I have (just for kicks) been trying ctx-9 without pieces of the patch to
see if I can get it to stay up longer. It appears that of all the small
changes that were made from 8 -> 9, that removing the :
+ current->ipv4root_bcast = bcast;
from "asmlinkage int sys_set_ipv4root" in net/socket.c has stopped the
netstat blowing up my machine problem.
Not knowing much about kernel level things anymore :(, is it the chcontext
that calls set_ipv4root? Or something else, and whatever it is, how do we
know it has set the bcast parameter correctly when it was invoked and is
not getting passed with crud?
