SubjectRe: [PATCH] connector: add parent pid and tgid to coredump and exit events
From
Date
Hi David,

I don't see how it breaks UAPI. The point is that structures
coredump_proc_event and exit_proc_event are members of *union*
event_data, thus position of the existing data in the structure is
unchanged. Furthermore, this change won't increase size of struct
proc_event, because comm_proc_event (also a member of event_data) is
of bigger size than the changed structures.

If I'm wrong, could you please explain what exactly will the change
break in UAPI?
