      [PATCH] I2C: Fix incorrect sysfs file permissions in it87 and via686a drivers · 1d66c64c
      Jean Delvare authored
      The it87 and via686a hardware monitoring drivers each create a sysfs
      file named "alarms" in R/W mode, while they should really create it in
      read-only mode. Since we don't provide a store function for these files,
      write attempts to these files will do something undefined (I guess) and
      bad (I am sure). My own try resulted in a locked terminal (where I
      attempted the write) and a 100% CPU load until next reboot.
      As a side note, wouldn't it make sense to check, when creating sysfs
      files, that readable files have a non-NULL show method, and writable
      files have a non-NULL store method? I know drivers are not supposed to
      do stupid things, but there is already a BUG_ON for several conditions
      in sysfs_create_file, so maybe we could add two more?

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
