There is a minor issue regarding the structure sizes in with both this
patch and the in-tree code. The following two structures define nine
rows in the lux table:

tsl2x7x.h:
#define TSL2X7X_MAX_LUX_TABLE_SIZE 9

struct tsl2X7X_platform_data {
...
struct tsl2x7x_lux platform_lux_table[TSL2X7X_MAX_LUX_TABLE_SIZE];
}

tsl2x7x.c:
struct tsl2X7X_chip {
...
struct tsl2x7x_lux tsl2x7x_device_lux[TSL2X7X_MAX_LUX_TABLE_SIZE];
}

tsl2x7x_defaults() has this code snippet:

memcpy(chip->tsl2x7x_device_lux,
(struct tsl2x7x_lux *)tsl2x7x_default_lux_table_group[chip->id],
MAX_DEFAULT_TABLE_BYTES);

With the old and new code, memcpy will only copy the first three rows of
the lux table. There is no security issue though with the actual
implementation since the four *_lux_table structures that are defined in
code only have three rows defined.

I believe that the correct fix is to define MAX_DEFAULT_TABLE_BYTES in
Dan's patch as follows (and keeping his other changes):

#define MAX_DEFAULT_TABLE_BYTES (sizeof(struct tsl2x7x_lux) *
TSL2X7X_MAX_LUX_TABLE_SIZE)

We may also want to shorten those #defines to keep it under 80
characters.

Brian
