Subject[PATCH] staging: tidspbridge: protect dmm_map properly
Date
Hi Greg,

Please consider to apply this patch in the staging tree, as the
description says it fixes a crash in tidspbridge driver, this bug
was already present but it seems to have surfaced by recent tests
made by Felipe and Tuomas.

It is an urgent fix for 2.6.38.

More on this discussion:

Thanks,
- omar

From: Felipe Contreras <felipe.contreras@nokia.com>

We need to protect not only the dmm_map list, but the individual
map_obj's, otherwise, we might be building the scatter-gather list with
garbage. So, use the existing proc_lock for that.

I observed race conditions which caused kernel panics while running
stress tests, also, Tuomas Kulve found it happening quite often in
Gumstix Over. This patch fixes those.
