Subject: Re: [PATCH][AX25] ax25_ds_timer: use mod_timer instead of add_timer

Hi Jarek,

Sorry, I should have been more explicit about the patches I applied.

My CPU is an Intel Core 2 duo and I compiled 2.6.24 with SMP option.

I applied 3 patches you have submitted for ax25 before I observed the 
possible locking.

That is :

mkiss patch
diff --git a/drivers/net/hamradio/mkiss.c b/drivers/net/hamradio/mkiss.c
index cfcd15a..30c9b3b 100644

[AX25] ax25_timer: use mod_timer instead of add_timer

[AX25] ax25_ds_timer: use mod_timer instead of add_timer

I also applied 4 patches for rose.ko I sent to the list a while ago.
But for this report I did not installed any ROSE driver nor application.

I will try your new patch version 2 and report any possible change.


Bernard Pidoux,
