    SubjectRe: [PATCH] bitmap: bitmap_parse takes a kernel buffer instead of a user buffer

    Hi Andrew

    We are going to use this in the Linux UWB project; is it
    possible/makes it sense to get it in?

    > lib/bitmap.c:bitmap_parse() is a library function that received as input a
    > user buffer. This seemed to have originated from the way the write_proc
    > function of the /proc filesystem operates.
    > This function will be useful for other uses as well; for example, taking
    > input for /sysfs instead of /proc, so it was changed to accept kernel
    > buffers. We have this use for the Linux UWB project, as part as the
    > upcoming bandwidth allocator code.
    > Only a few routines used this function and they were changed too.
