ipc: make shm_get_stat() more robust
Tony Battersby [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:26 +0000 (16:58 -0700)]
shm_get_stat() assumes idr_find(&shm_ids(ns).ipcs_idr) returns "struct
shmid_kernel *"; all other callers assume that it returns "struct
kern_ipc_perm *".  This works because "struct kern_ipc_perm" is currently
the first member of "struct shmid_kernel", but it would be better to use
container_of() to prevent future breakage.
