SubjectRe: [PATCH][v5][0/24] Latest IB patch queue
    David> W00t :-) All applied, thanks Roland.

David> I'll run it through some build tests then toss it upstream.

Very cool, thanks a lot. Let me know if you see any build failures --
I test on about 6 or 7 different archs/configs but the bug gods always
seem to hide problems from me.

Speaking of build failures, one of my test builds is cross-compiling
for sparc64 with gcc 3.4.2, which adds __attribute__((warn_unused_result))
to copy_to_user() et al. The -Werror in the arch/sparc64 means the
build fails with

linux-2.6.10/arch/sparc64/kernel/sys_sparc32.c:1686: warning: ignoring return value of `copy_to_user', declared with attribute warn_unused_result

Of course binfmt_elf.c and compat_ioctl.c still have issues but those
probably get more visibility...

Thanks,
Roland


Check copy_to_user() return value in sys_sparc32.c and sys_sunos32.c.
