    Subject[BUG] x86info fails on 2.6.34 ?
    From
    Date
    Hi Dave

    I just noticed x86info was not working anymore on latest kernel

    x86info v1.24. Dave Jones 2001-2009

    type seek: Value too large for defined data type


    Offending syscall is an lseek(fd, -1, SEEK_CUR) on /dev/mem file



    open("/dev/mem", O_RDONLY) = 3
    ...
    lseek(3, 1023092, SEEK_SET) = 1023092
    read(3, "PCMP\4\3\4\266HP PROLIANT \0\0\0\0\0"..., 44) = 44
    read(3, "\0"..., 1) = 1
    lseek(3, -1, SEEK_CUR) = -1 EOVERFLOW (Value too large
    for defined data type)

    It seems -1 is taken as an unsigned quantity ?
