- hotfixes : security and critical fixes for recent Linux-2.4 kernels - Willy Tarreau
The 2.4-hf kernel tree only contains hotfixes for 2.4 mainline kernels. These
are intended for people who cannot upgrade for various reasons, and who still
need to apply a security or stability fix. All patches are extracted from the
next mainline release or pre-release. The oldest yet supported kernel is 2.4.29.
- kmsgdump : a Kernel Messages Dumper used to save oopses and panics for further analysis - Willy Tarreau - 2004/03/28
KMSGDUMP is an extension to the Linux kernel which allows the user on the
console to dump the last kernel messages onto a floppy diskette, thus
avoiding to take a pen and a paper to copy them when the system is stuck.
Only 3"1/2, 1.44 MB diskettes are supported by default. Other capacities
might work, provided you change the geometry in the file "kmsgdump.h".
- ramfs-limit : Enforces usage limits on RAMFS to protect system resources - David Gibson - 2006/01/16
David Gibson proposed a patch for 2.4-ac to prevent RAMFS from using all system
memory. It has recently been ported to 2.4.32.
- strict-overcommit : Strict VM overcommit accounting - Barry K.Nathan - 2005/12/29
This patch adds strict VM overcommit accounting to the mainline 2.4
kernel, thus allowing overcommit to be truly disabled. This feature
has been in 2.4-ac, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 (RHEL 3) vendor kernels,
and 2.6 for a long while.
- watchdogs : Various watchdog drivers
This page gathers links to various watchdog drivers found around the net.
