Re: [RFC][PATCH 4/7] UBC: syscalls (user interface)

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Add the following system calls for UB management:
 1. sys_getluid    - get current UB id
 2. sys_setluid    - changes exec_ and fork_ UBs on current
 3. sys_setublimit - set limits for resources consumtions

Why not have another system call for getting the current limits?
will add sys_getublimit().

But as I said in previous mail, configfs seems like a better choice for
user interface.  That way user has to go to one place to read/write
limits, see the current usage and other stats.
Check another email about interfaces. I have arguments against it :/

I think there should be a check here for seeing if the new limits are
lower than the current usage of a resource.  If so then take appropriate
any idea what exact action to add here?
Looks like can be added when needed, agree?
