SubjectRe: Patch of a new driver for kernel 2.4.x that need review
Hi,

Some comments below. Please note that I am more familiar with 2.6 so
some of these might not apply.

Please use enums instead.

Please use kerneldoc format.

Please use C99 struct initializers.

You're leaking alarm_events here.

Please put nominal case first (i.e. make this the first block).

You're leaking alarm_events and reserved region here. (Use gotos for
error handling, btw.)

Same as before plus leaking devfs handle.

Please use enums instead (applies to other parts of this file too).
