[PATCH] create a kstrdup library function
Paulo Marques [Thu, 23 Jun 2005 07:09:02 +0000 (00:09 -0700)]
This patch creates a new kstrdup library function and changes the "local"
implementations in several places to use this function.

Most of the changes come from the sound and net subsystems.  The sound part
had already been acknowledged by Takashi Iwai and the net part by David S.
Miller.

I left UML alone for now because I would need more time to read the code
carefully before making changes there.
