2. Bug Fixes¶
Hard lockups happened when the kernel was processing SAK (Secure Attention Key). (PSBM-80340)
Memory cgroups were not correctly released during start/stop of containers with Docker. If the node had a significant amount of such containers, this could lead to stopped containers not starting again. (PSBM-81264)
vstorage-mount spent a lot of time in isolate_freepages_block() in some cases, causing performance issues. (PSBM-81488)
Memcg swpin/swpout stats were calculated incorrectly. (PSBM-81509)
Ploop: some I/O requests were not marked as completed in case of errors. (PSBM-81600)
