    Subject[patch 025/176] USB: g_printer: fix bug in module parameter definitions
    2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Alan Stern <>

    commit ad84e4a9efb7c8ed322bafb6ebdb9c3a49a3d3a8 upstream.

    This patch (as1442) fixes a bug in g_printer: Module parameters should
    not be marked "__initdata" if they are accessible in sysfs (i.e., if
    the mode value in the module_param() macro is nonzero). Otherwise
    attempts to access the parameters will cause addressing violations.

    Character-string module parameters must not be marked "__initdata"
    if the module can be unloaded, because the kernel needs to access the
    parameter variable at unload time in order to free the
    dynamically-allocated string.
