parent[PATCH] fs/smbfs/request.c: turn NULL dereference into BUG() (diff)
[PATCH] tpm: Fix lack of driver_unregister in init failcases
driver_unregister is not being properly called when the init function returns an error case. Restructured the return logic such that this and the other cleanups all happen in one place. Preformed many of the cleanups that Andrew Morton's patch on Thursday made in tpm_atmel.c. Fixed Matthieu's concern about writing before discovery. (akpm: rmk said: This driver is buggy. You must not provide your own release function - it doesn't solve the problem which the warning (which you get when you don't provide one) is telling you about. You should convert your device driver over to the replacement dynamic platform support, once it is merged. IOW, something like: pdev = platform_device_alloc("mydev", id); if (pdev) { err = platform_device_add_resources(pdev, &resources, ARRAY_SIZE(resources)); if (err == 0) err = platform_device_add_data(pdev, &platform_data, sizeof(platform_data)); if (err == 0) err = platform_device_add(pdev); } else { err = -ENOMEM; } if (err) platform_device_put(pdev); ) Signed-off-by: Kylene Jo Hall <kjhall@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
