Subject[PATCH 0/9] restart_block: Prepare the ground for dumping timeout
Date
Hi,

I'm trying to address an issue in CRIU (Checkpoint Restore In Userspace)
about timed syscalls restart. It's not possible to use restart_syscall()
as the majority of applications does, as after restore the kernel doesn't
know anything about a syscall that may have been interrupted on
checkpoint. That's because the tasks are re-created from scratch and so
there isn't task_struct::restart_block set on a new task.

As a preparation, unify timeouts for different syscalls in
restart_block.

On contrary, I'm struggling with patches that introduce the new ptrace()
request API. I'll speak about difficulties of designing new ptrace
operation on Containers Microconference at Plumbers [with a hope to
find the sensible solution].
