Hi, Larry, I think your patch DOES help in these cases.
But your first mention of "Cold Boot Attacks" may somewhat mislead
others to think it can close all the paths for leaking in-memory sensative data.
Surely, cold boot attack can exploit ANY in-memory data, and just as
Alan Cox said,
not all of the data will go deallocated before your machine is cold rebooted.
Surely, there are many ways to leak data, this patch closes ONE of them.
I think Alan Cox is mentioning "the other ways" .
So maybe you are both right from different aspects.
