    Subject[151/197] agp/hp: fixup hp agp after ACPI changes
    2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Bjorn Helgaas <>

    commit 67fe63b0715ccfaefa0af8a6e705c5470ee5cada upstream.

    Commit 15b8dd53f5ffa changed the string in info->hardware_id from a static
    array to a pointer and added a length field. But instead of changing
    "sizeof(array)" to "length", we changed it to "sizeof(length)" (== 4),
    which corrupts the string we're trying to null-terminate.

    We no longer even need to null-terminate the string, but we *do* need to
    check whether we found a HID. If there's no HID, we used to have an empty
    array, but now we have a null pointer.

    The combination of these defects causes this oops:

    Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference (address 0000000000000003)
    modprobe[895]: Oops 8804682956800 [1]
    ip is at zx1_gart_probe+0xd0/0xcc0 [hp_agp]
