SubjectRe: Linux 2.4.0test11pre1ac1
the network driver changes look ok except for:
epic100:
* CARDBUS is never defined. Should that be CONFIG_CARDBUS?
* just increment the version number. There's no need to add "a" on the
end... this version number just differentiates us from the 'canonical'
Donald Becker version of epic100.c.


net/atm/pvc: return the error value from sock_register, not toss it
away.


ramfs comments:
* Hang on to the ramfs changes for a day or two, there is kmap cleanup
(now returns void*) going to Linus RSN.
* Does ramfs_statfs() need that sb lock in it? Sure free_pages/inodes
might be getting updated on some other CPU, but its statfs so who
cares...
* the default ramfs maxsize, half of all RAM, seems a little
conservative.
* there is no need to kmalloc a private superblock structure, when room
is already allocated inside the superblock structure for private data.
(sb->u)
*


I wonder if we really need removepage added to struct address_space?
That's one API change we shouldn't throw in without discussion, IMHO...
it screams "ramfs-specific hack in core code!"
void __remove_inode_page(struct page *page)
{
+ struct address_space *mapping = page->mapping;
+
+ if (mapping && mapping->a_ops && mapping->a_ops->removepage)
+ mapping->a_ops->removepage(page);
+


And finally, don't you need to EXPORT_SYMBOL pm_devs_lock ?
