[PATCH] softmac: handle iw_mode properly

Below patch allows using iw_mode auto with softmac. bcm43xx forces managed
so this bug wasn't noticed earlier, but this was one of the problems why
zd1211 didn't work earlier.

Michael Buesch [Thu, 6 Apr 2006 23:42:55 +0000]
[PATCH] softmac: fix spinlock recursion on reassoc

This fixes a spinlock recursion on receiving a reassoc request.

On reassoc, the softmac calls back into the driver. This results in a
driver lock recursion. This schedules the assoc workqueue, instead
of calling it directly.

Probably, we should defer the _whole_ management frame processing
to a tasklet or workqueue, because it does several callbacks into the driver.
That is dangerous.

This fix should go into linus's tree, before 2.6.17 is released, because it
is remote exploitable (DoS by crash).

Jean Tourrilhes [Tue, 4 Apr 2006 22:59:46 +0000]
[PATCH] Revert NET_RADIO Kconfig title change

2.6.17-rc1 changed the title for the entry CONFIG_NET_RADIO. I
personally disagree with this change and want it reverted. Patch for
2.6.17-rc1.
Rationale : WIRELESS_EXT is an invisible option. Therefore,
the only way for a user to enable it is via NET_RADIO. Some users need
to do that for out-of-tree drivers. Therefore it should be mentionned
in the title of the option.
Rationale2 : the option just below is called "Wireless
Extension API over RtNetlink". Some users may confuse this option for
the main "Wireless Extension" option. Therefore reverting this change
help disambiguate the relation between those two options.

Airo firmware versions >= 5.30.17 send re-association events to the

13 years ago[PATCH] m32r: Fix pt_regs for !COFNIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2 target
Hirokazu Takata [Wed, 19 Apr 2006 05:21:20 +0000]
[PATCH] m32r: Fix pt_regs for !COFNIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2 target

This modification is required to fix debugging function for m32r targets
with !CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2, by unifying 'struct pt_regs' and 'struct
sigcontext' size for all M32R ISA.

Some m32r processor core with !CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2 configuration has only
single accumulator a0 (ex.  VDEC2 core, M32102 core, etc.), the others with
CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2 has two accumulators, a0 and a1.

This means there are two variations of thread context.  So far, we reduced
and changed stackframe size at a syscall for their context size.  However,
this causes a problem that a GDB for processors with CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2
cannot be used for processors with !CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2.

From the viewpoint of GDB support, we should reduce such variation of
stackframe size for simplicity.

In this patch, dummy members are added to 'struct pt_regs' and 'struct
sigcontext' to adjust their size for !CONFIG_ISA_DSP_LEVEL2.

This modification is also a one step for a GDB update in future.
Currently, on the m32r, GDB can access process's context by using ptrace
functions in a simple way of register by register access.  By unifying
stackframe size, we have a possibility to make use of ptrace functions of
not only a single register access but also block register access,
PTRACE_{GETREGS,PUTREGS}.

However, for this purpose, we might have to modify stackframe structure
some more; for example, PSW (processor status word) register should be
pre-processed before pushing to stack at a syscall, and so on.  In this
case, we must update carefully both kernel and GDB at a time...

[PATCH] swsusp: prevent possible image corruption on resume

The function free_pagedir() used by swsusp for freeing its internal data
structures clears the PG_nosave and PG_nosave_free flags for each page
being freed.

However, during resume PG_nosave_free set means that the page in
question is "unsafe" (ie.  it will be overwritten in the process of
restoring the saved system state from the image), so it should not be
used for the image data.

Therefore free_pagedir() should not clear PG_nosave_free if it's called
during resume (otherwise "unsafe" pages freed by it may be used for
storing the image data and the data may get corrupted later on).

[PATCH] uml: make 64-bit COW files compatible with 32-bit ones

This is the minimal fix to make 64-bit UML binaries create 32-bit
compatible COW files and read them.

I've indeed tested that current code doesn't do this - the code gets
SIGFPE for a division by a value read at the wrong place, where 0 is
found.
