SubjectRe: Bug in kernel code?
   From: "Stephen C. Biggs" <>

You're misunderstanding me, I meant that the first test is done
AFTER the first iteration is executed, so my fix is correct
since, even if order is 0 because at least one iteration of the
loop is done, and the post decrement makes sure that the test
succeeds if order was 0 going into the loop.

Order is always >= 0 when we enter the loop.

If we actually get the table allocated then the decrement of 'order'
is not executed if we allocate the table successfully.

I don't understand what the problem is with my fix.
