SubjectRe: [PATCH] ACP Modem (Mwave)
From
Date
The patch has been updated...  The updates primarily consist of Alan's
suggested changes below... (thank you) It applies against the 2.4.6
kernel...

It can be gotten here: http://oss.software.ibm.com/acpmodem/
Or directly: http://oss.software.ibm.com/acpmodem/mwave_linux-2.4.6.patch

Comments, questions, suggestions are appreciated...

Cheers...Paul...

First obvious comments

+ while (uCount-- != 0) {
+ unsigned short val_lo, val_hi;
+ cli();
+ val_lo = InWordDsp(DSP_MsaDataISLow);
+ val_hi = InWordDsp(DSP_MsaDataDSISHigh);
+ put_user(val_lo, pusBuffer++);
+ put_user(val_hi, pusBuffer++);
+ sti();
+


1. Please use spinlocks not cli/sti as they will go away probably in 2.5

2. You can't touch user space holding interrupts off as it can't handle
page faults

+void PaceMsaAccess(unsigned short usDspBaseIO)
+{
+ schedule();
+ udelay(100);
+ schedule();
+}

If you are trying to be friendly then add

if(current->need_resched)
schedule()

just to be more efficient


+BOOLEAN dsp3780I_GetIPCSource(unsigned short usDspBaseIO,
+ unsigned short *pusIPCSourc

s/BOOLEAN/int
s/TRUE/0
s/FALSE/-Eappropriateval

would be more in keeping. Not a bug by any means


The ioctl locking seems wrong. It doesnt look like the DSP accesses are
locked against one another and you can issue multiple ioctls in parallel in
different threads


If mwave_read/write do nothing then they should really be returning an
error
code. 0 is EOF, count on write is success.

+BOOLEAN smapi_init()

you want (void) or you get compiler warnings on some compiler revisions

+ PRINTK_1(TRACE_SMAPI, "smapi::smapi_init entry\n");
+
+ usSmapiID = CMOS_READ(0x7C);
+ usSmapiID |= (CMOS_READ(0x7D) << 8);

CMOS reads/writes must be done holding the lock against other cmos users

+int Initialize(THINKPAD_BD_DATA * pBDData)

Please dont have globals with names so generic


Hope those are useful

Alan
