SubjectRe: [PATCH] New: Omnikey CardMan 4040 PCMCIA Driver

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't these #defines be a problem with
the new HZ flexibility:

#define POLL_LOOP_COUNT 1000

/* how often to poll for fifo status change */
#define POLL_PERIOD (HZ/100)

In particular, 2.6.13 allows a HZ of 100, which would define POLL_PERIOD to 0.
Your later calls to mod_timer would be setting cmx_poll_timer to the current
value of jiffies.

Also, you've got a typo in the comments:

* - adhere to linux kenrel coding style and policies

Forgive me if I'm way off - I'm just now getting my feet wet in kernel
development. Just making comments based on what I (think) I know at this
