ah thx,

the reason I asked was that I (for a short time) I hoped that this commit would solve an issue at a 32 bit user mode linux (x86), which cored dumps since few weeks/months when fuzz-tested with trinity.
Unfortunately this is not the case. Although with this commit it needs much longer than before till the UML core dump happens (2-3 hours instead of about 30 minutes).

Just for completeness here is the back trace of the UML guest:

$> gdb /home/tfoerste/devel/linux/linux --core=/mnt/ramdisk/core -batch -ex 'thread apply all bt'
