    Driver core: change add_uevent_var to use a struct · 7eff2e7a
    Kay Sievers authored
    This changes the uevent buffer functions to use a struct instead of a
    long list of parameters. It does no longer require the caller to do the
    proper buffer termination and size accounting, which is currently wrong
    in some places. It fixes a known bug where parts of the uevent
    environment are overwritten because of wrong index calculations.
    Many thanks to Mathieu Desnoyers for finding bugs and improving the
    error handling.
