interrupt disabled rules
i'm not familiar with all of the kernel functions. but i'd like to know
which ones should not be called with interrupts disabled.
malloc(size, type, M_WAITOK);
is a bad idea. is this true? for which levels of interrupt disabling?
and other functions probably shouldn't be called with interrupts disabled,
either, like copyin/copyout? (creates a denial of service on linux)
we're working on automated system checking here at stanford, and need some
rules to check for. any other rules would be appreciated too.
ps: not on list, please cc. thanks
