      [PATCH] VIDIOC_ENUMSTD bug · b7de567b
      Jonathan Corbet authored
      The v4l2 API documentation for VIDIOC_ENUMSTD says:
      	To enumerate all standards applications shall begin at index
      	zero, incrementing by one until the driver returns EINVAL.
      The actual code, however, tests the index this way:
                     if (index<=0 || index >= vfd->tvnormsize) {
      So any application which passes in index=0 gets EINVAL right off the bat
      - and, in fact, this is what happens to mplayer.  So I think the
      following patch is called for, and maybe even appropriate for a 2.6.18.x
      stable release.

      [PATCH] load_module: no BUG if module_subsys uninitialized · 1cc5f714
      Ed Swierk authored
      Invoking load_module() before param_sysfs_init() is called crashes in
      mod_sysfs_setup(), since the kset in module_subsys is not initialized yet.
      In my case, net-pf-1 is getting modprobed as a result of hotplug trying to
      create a UNIX socket.  Calls to hotplug begin after the topology_init
      Another patch for the same symptom (module_subsys-initialize-earlier.patch)
      moves param_sysfs_init() to the subsys initcalls, but this is still not
      early enough in the boot process in some cases.  In particular,
      topology_init() causes /sbin/hotplug to run, which requests net-pf-1 (the
      UNIX socket protocol) which can be compiled as a module.  Moving
      param_sysfs_init() to the postcore initcalls fixes this particular race,
      but there might well be other cases where a usermodehelper causes a module
      to load earlier still.
      The patch makes load_module() return an error rather than crashing the
      kernel if invoked before module_subsys is initialized.

      [PATCH] i386: fix flat mode numa on a real numa system · bfa0e9a0
      keith mannthey authored
      If there is only 1 node in the system cpus should think they are apart of
      some other node.
      If cases where a real numa system boots the Flat numa option make sure the
      cpus don't claim to be apart on a non-existent node.
