Oleg, you are doing great job. Thanks!

Well.. I just looked into that function. Do we have a kernel
obfuscated C contest? ;)

BTW, that char* str is not local. It is not even static.
It is global symbol: "char *chassis_str, *rxe_str, *str;"

A bit weird to have 3 and 2 bytes allocated in two separate kmalloc()

This was fun, right? "Lets add second memset just in case
first failed" ;) ;)

Wow! *str1 is 2 bytes long, not 3!

Anyway, here is the diff against some old 2.5 (sorry don't have latest
tree here at the moment). Also here are old and new functions
for easy visual diff. Completely untested:

static char *convert_2digits_to_char (int var)
{
int bit;
char *str1;
str = (char *) kmalloc (3, GFP_KERNEL);
memset (str, 0, 3);
str1 = (char *) kmalloc (2, GFP_KERNEL);
memset (str, 0, 3);
bit = (int)(var / 10);
switch (bit) {
case 0:
//one digit number
*str = (char)(var + 48);
return str;
default:
//2 digits number
*str1 = (char)(bit + 48);
strncpy (str, str1, 1);
memset (str1, 0, 3);
*str1 = (char)((var % 10) + 48);
strcat (str, str1);
return str;
}
return NULL;
}
static char *convert_2digits_to_char (int var)
{
int bit;
char *str = (char *) kmalloc (3, GFP_KERNEL);
if (!str)
return NULL;
bit = (int)(var / 10);
switch (bit) {
case 0:
//one digit number
str[0] = (char)(var + '0');
str[1] = 0;
break;
default:
//2 digits number
str[0] = (char)(bit + '0');
str[1] = (char)((var % 10) + '0');
str[2] = 0;
break;
}
return str;
}
