Subject[PATCH] linux-2.4.0-test7/driver/sbus/char/vfc_dev.c
Hello!

I'm just trying to compile a kernel for my sparc and found a bug in the
above file:

In line 170:
dev->de = devfs_register (devfs_handle, devname, DEVFS_FL_DEFAULT,
VFC_MAJOR, instance,
S_IFCHR | S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR,
&vfc_fops, NULL);

the call needs
static struct file_operations vfc_fops;
which is not defined until line 642. A forward declaration at the
beginning fixes the problem:

--- linux/drivers/sbus/char/vfc_dev.c.orig Mon Sep 4 20:36:04 2000
+++ linux/drivers/sbus/char/vfc_dev.c Mon Sep 4 20:31:28 2000
@@ -42,6 +42,7 @@
#include "vfc.h"
#include <asm/vfc_ioctls.h>

+static struct file_operations vfc_fops;
static devfs_handle_t devfs_handle = NULL; /* For the directory */
struct vfc_dev **vfc_dev_lst;
static char vfcstr[]="vfc";
The mentioned author can't be reached anymore so I'm sending this directly
to this list.
