SubjectRe: Wait queue crash
   Speaking of wait queues, I'm trying to use them too:

interruptible_sleep_on_timeout (&wait, HZ / 25U);

The use of wait queues seems to have changed somewhat compared to the
description in "Linux Device Drivers" by Alessandro Rubini, and I'm
wondering if the above piece of code is OK. I'm trying to insert a delay
into the probe function of a network driver. Where do I find reasonably
up-to-date documentation on the use of wait queues?

Patch for linux/Documentation/kernel-docs.txt in linux 2.3.46 to fix a
copy-and-paste bug:

* Title: "Kernel API changes from 2.2 to 2.3"
Author: Richard Gooch.
Keywords: 2.3, changes.
Description: Kernel functions/structures/variables which changed
from 2.2.x to 2.3.x.

P.S. Why is linux/Documentation/kernel-docs.txt not world readable?
