Public source code repositories, from Sourceforge to GitHub, from the Linux Kernel Archives to ReactOS.org, from PHP Packagist to the Python Package Index, better known as PyPI, are a fantastic source...
Security researcher and Linux kernel contributor Alexander Popov has proposed a new kernel option called "pkill_on_warn" that would kill all threads in a process if that process provoked a kernel warning.

And when that happens, I have just the thing for you - a new kernel release to test and enjoy,” wrote Torvalds as he put out the new release.
