I've actually made a number of other changes in the past month or so to
number of problems with page faults from the original patch. These page
were caused by a null pointer in thread stuctures during forking. It seems
fairly easy to demonstrate this issue by executing any program that does a
forking from inside a jail. I'm not exactly sure why these values are null,
but it seems to be well outside the context of these patches. I added some
checks for this null value and that seems to have cleared things up.
I've attached an updated (and hopefully functional) patch that is against
original version of src/sys/kern/kern_jail.c so you will need to revert this
before applying it. I've done my work on 6.2 so I can't say if this patch
will work on
other versions. This patch also includes the changes to get memory limits to
Let me know how it goes and hopefully the patch is correct this time :)
