Subject2.4.22: ymfpci module segfaults
Hello LKML,

It is extremely likely that you missed this reported segmentation fault as
the original poster tried to inform the LKML via Google Groups:

2.4.22 has been a wonderful success--up to the point that my last box to
be upgraded hung when booting. I isolated it to the loading of the ymfpci
module. In a subsequent web search I was fortunate to come across the
above reply.

So I reverted the change:

--- drivers/sound/ymfpci.c.original 2003-08-26 15:41:11.000000000 +1200
+++ drivers/sound/ymfpci.c 2003-08-26 15:52:36.000000000 +1200
@@ -2472,7 +2472,7 @@

eid = ymfpci_codec_read(codec, AC97_EXTENDED_ID);
- if (eid==0xFFFF) {
+ if (eid==0xFFFFFF) {
printk(KERN_WARNING "ymfpci: no codec attached ?\n");
goto out_kfree;

Now I can load the ymfpci, soundcore and ac97_codec modules as before and
sound works fine. The kernel messages are:
ymfpci: YMF724F at 0xda000000 IRQ 19
ac97_codec: AC97 Audio codec, id: 0x8384:0x7605 (SigmaTel STAC9704)
lspci lists the sound card as:
00:09.0 Multimedia audio controller: Yamaha Corporation YMF-724F [DS-1Audio Controller] (rev 03)

I'd suggest Pete Zaitcev's advice is sound for 2.4:

"...for 2.4 I just removed the check. Consider that it was not working for
the whole life time of the driver, and not a single soul complained."
