Subject[PATCH] [23/275] USB: g_printer: fix bug in module parameter definitions
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

From: Alan Stern <>

commit ad84e4a9efb7c8ed322bafb6ebdb9c3a49a3d3a8 upstream.

This patch (as1442) fixes a bug in g_printer: Module parameters should
not be marked "__initdata" if they are accessible in sysfs (i.e., if
the mode value in the module_param() macro is nonzero). Otherwise
attempts to access the parameters will cause addressing violations.

Character-string module parameters must not be marked "__initdata"
if the module can be unloaded, because the kernel needs to access the
parameter variable at unload time in order to free the
dynamically-allocated string.
