SubjectRe: OOPS loading cs46xx module, test11-pre1

Patch Generally looks ok. Comments:

1) This code is weird:
> if (copy_to_user(buffer, dmabuf->rawbuf + swptr, cnt)) {
>- if (!ret) ret = -EFAULT;
>- return ret;
>+ if (!ret)
>+ ret = -EFAULT;
>+ break;
> }

If you have an error condition (ret != 0), then you should not attempt
the copy_to_user at all.
If you do not have an error condition, you should unconditionally assign
-EFAULT to 'ret'.

There is code like this around calls to copy_{to,from}_user and
signal_pending that I see at a quick glance.

2) this patch enabled cs_mmap, and removes a check for vma->vm_offset !=
0. Also that is clearly 2.2.x code, simply removing the check is
wrong. You should replace the check with one that checks vma->vm_pgoff
!= 0.

3) is there method or madness to the delay changes? they are not
explained, just changed...

4) cs_probe is marked __init but cs_remove is marked __devexit. on
hotplug, cs_probe simply doesn't exist in the kernel anymore... boom.

5) there is no need to appear zeroes to the end of these cs_pci_tbl
entries. Just end each with "PCI_ANY_ID,"...
+ { PCI_VENDOR_ID_CIRRUS, 0x6001, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, 0
},
+ { PCI_VENDOR_ID_CIRRUS, 0x6003, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, 0
},
+ { PCI_VENDOR_ID_CIRRUS, 0x6004, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, 0
},
6) remove check for pci_present(), redundant

7) use pci_module_init for hotplug. quite simply:

init_module() { return pci_module_init(&my_driver); }
of course for cs46xx, you will want to keep the version printk...

8) xxx_MODULE_NAME was a dumb and overly-lengthy creation of mine. Use
instead MODNAME.
