Subject[PATCH] some large create_module(2) sizes can oops a kernel
Date
Hi Rusty aka trivial patch monkey, everyone,

The 2.4 kernel will oops when create_module(2) is passed a size of
-1, -2, or any size larger than num_physpages. The following patch
is one of the many simple ways to fix this. Please consider it or
some variant for inclusion in 2.4.

I mention this issue only because the kernel should not be panic-able
based on user input to system services.

This patch leaves unfixed the sparc64, x86_64, and generic
architectures. Only the i386 was tested.

Regards,
Joe
