Muli Ben-Yehuda's journal

Al Viro shot down my ‘remove %n from printk’ patch. Oh well, ain’t going to argue with him. He was polite about it, too, which is a bit disappointing – I was looking forward to a flame haiku, at least.

In other new,‘s weekly kernel summary is telling me that Rik Faith’s lightweight syscall auditing framework *will* be included ih 2.6.6. Missed that on lkml. Someone mentioned in the comments that the snare folks are working on how to integrate with it, and I have a feeling syscalltrack should too, but I just don’t feel like working on it.

In other other news, registration to OLS has begun!


  1. I just read lwn and the lightweight syscall auditing and wondered if syscalltrack would use it.

    • It’s not quite clear cut. On one hand, the auditing framework provides some of what sct needs. On the other, it doesn’t provide some of the other functionality, so we’d have to either give it up, or hack it in, or extend the framework (most plausible, but unlikely to be accepted).

  2. What happened? What was the reason for the shoot down? Sorry, I have not been reading lkml.

    • Too bad, it’s going to be awesome (again). Maybe next year…

      • As usual, I hope I will get to go (and meet you).
