Subject[BUG 2.5.56] IDE/CDROM Oops at boot time without /proc
Date
Hello,

Please note that using IDE CDRom without /proc support will result
in Oops at boot time.

In drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c, the code is :

/* Make sure that /proc/sys/dev is there */
ctl_table cdrom_root_table[] = {
#ifdef CONFIG_PROC_FS
{CTL_DEV, "dev", NULL, 0, 0555, cdrom_cdrom_table},
#endif /* CONFIG_PROC_FS */
{0}
};
static struct ctl_table_header *cdrom_sysctl_header;

static void cdrom_sysctl_register(void)
{
static int initialized;

if (initialized == 1)
return;

cdrom_sysctl_header = register_sysctl_table(cdrom_root_table,
1);
cdrom_root_table->child->de->owner = THIS_MODULE;

/* set the defaults */
cdrom_sysctl_settings.autoclose = autoclose;
cdrom_sysctl_settings.autoeject = autoeject;
cdrom_sysctl_settings.debug = debug;
cdrom_sysctl_settings.lock = lockdoor;
cdrom_sysctl_settings.check = check_media_type;

initialized = 1;
}

The line cdrom_root_table->child->de->owner = THIS_MODULE;
(line 2582) is broken is CONFIG_PROC_FS is not defined, as this
is resulting in the following Oops :

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address

<0>Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!

One easy trick would be to have :
#ifdef CONFIG_PROC_FS
cdrom_root_table->child->de->owner = THIS_MODULE;
#endif

but as this doesn't seem to be the favorite approach from people on
the mailing list, I'll leave this one to people in charge of
the module to apply the best approach patch to fix this.

Please note that, however, I've tested this change, and it is
working fine on my machine.
