Subject[PATCH 3/3] remove verify_area() - remove fs/umsdos/notes as it only contain a verify_area related note
Date

The file `fs/umsdos/notes' contains only a small note about a possible bug
involving verify_area(). Since umsdos is no longer in the kernel and
verify_area() is also gone, it seems to make sense that this file goes the
way of the Dodo.
After applying this patch the `fs/umsdos/' directory will be empty and can
be removed entirely.

- There is a call the verify_area that does not take in account
- the count parameter. I guess it should read
-
- error = verify_area(VERIFY_WRITE, dirent, count*sizeof (*dirent));
-
- instead of
-
- error = verify_area(VERIFY_WRITE, dirent, sizeof (*dirent));
-
- Of course, now , count is always 1
