I can send you some debug patches that will print out the specific

Is it possible to get this debug messages by turning on some flags?
If not yes, pl. send debug patches. its a live box and I will try to do it!

This is my system / kernel info:
uname -a
Linux XXX #1 SMP Tue May 13 04:54:47 EDT 2008
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I made a small patch to a vanilla kernel tree.
Hopefully it applies cleanly to that fc9 kernel source, but check/verify
that first before going any further.

Thanks a lot for the patch,
This is kind of weird.. but there is no file kernel/fork.c

[mark@localhost]$ find . -iname '*fork*' -print
[mark@localhost]$ rpm -ql
[mark@localhost]$ rpm -ql kernel-devel | grep fork
[mark@localhost]$ pwd

That's not a kernel source tree.

I'm no expert on fc nor on src.rpm's, but I think that you need to get
the fc kernel- file (or something like that).

Or use a plain vanilla kernel tree.
