Subject[PATCH 2.6.24] Add new string functions real_strtoul and change kernel params to use them
From
Date
Currently, for every sysfs node, the callers will be responsible for
implementing store operation, so many many callers are doing duplicate
things to validate input, they have the same mistakes because they are
calling simple_strtol/ul/ll/ull, especially for module params, they are
just numeric, but you can echo such values as 0x1234xxx, 07777888 and
1234aaa, for these cases, module params store operation just ignores
successive invalid char and converts prefix part to a numeric although
input is actually invalid.
This patch tries to fix the aforementioned issues and implements real_strtox
serial functions, kernel/params.c uses them to strictly validate input,
so module params will reject such values as 0x1234xxxx and returns an error:
write error: Invalid argument

Any modules which export numeric sysfs node can use real_strtox instead of
simple_strtox to reject any invalid input. Please consider to merge to -mm tree
in order to test.

Here are some test results:
