Hotfix now available for Slim Reader/Writer lock issue

Back in September I mentioned that I had found a problem with my usage of Slim reader/writer locks. I expected this to be something that I was doing wrong but it turned out that it was a kernel bug.

This morning Johan Torp tweeted that a hotfix for this issue is now available.

The note on the hotfix states: “Note These issues are not obvious and are difficult to debug. This update is intended for applicable systems to apply proactively in order to increase the reliability of these systems.”, so go install it even if you don’t know that you’re having these problems right now…
