2007-11-26plip: fix parport_register_device name parameterMikulas Patocka1-0/+4
Plip passes a string "name" that is allocated on stack to parport_register_device. parport_register_device holds the pointer to "name" and when the registering function exits, it points nowhere. On some machine, this bug causes bad names to appear in /proc, such as /proc/sys/dev/parport/parport0/devices/T^/�X^/�, on others, the plip proc node is completely missing. The patch also fixes documentation to note this requirement. Signed-off-by: Mikulas Patocka <mikulas@artax.karlin.mff.cuni.cz> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2007-10-18sysctl: parport remove binary pathsEric W. Biederman1-26/+3
The sysctl binary paths don't look as if they even code work, .data is not filled in, and all of the proc_handlers look at extra1 and there is not strategy routine. So just kill the binary paths. In addition this patch removes the setting of extra1 on directories. It doesn't look like the parport code ever examines it, and it's bad sysctl form.

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!
