Subject[PATCH] Fix error in pnpbios escd read routine
From
Date
Alan, Dave:

This patch fixes an error in the pnpbios driver's routine
for reading ESCD data. (Note the 'buf' changed to 'tmpbuf'.)
Also, it adds another sanity check.

This bug probably caused the crashes reported by Chris Rankin
and Zwane Mwaikambo some weeks ago.
