[PATCH] epoll: fix delayed initialization bug
Al found a potential problem in epoll_create(), where the file->private_data member was set after fd_install(). This is obviously wrong since another thread might do a close() on that fd# before we set the file->private_data member. This goes over 2.6.13 and passes a few basic tests I've done here. (akpm: snuck in a kzalloc() cleanup too) Signed-off-by: Davide Libenzi <davidel@xmailserver.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
