Subject[PATCH 3.18 035/104] hpet: Fix missing = character in the __setup() code of hpet_mmap_enable
Date
[ Upstream commit 24d48a61f2666630da130cc2ec2e526eacf229e3 ]

Commit '3d035f580699 ("drivers/char/hpet.c: allow user controlled mmap for
user processes")' introduced a new kernel command line parameter hpet_mmap,
that is required to expose the memory map of the HPET registers to
user-space. Unfortunately the kernel command line parameter 'hpet_mmap' is
broken and never takes effect due to missing '=' character in the __setup()
code of hpet_mmap_enable.

Before this patch:

dmesg output with the kernel command line parameter hpet_mmap=1

[ 0.204152] HPET mmap disabled

dmesg output with the kernel command line parameter hpet_mmap=0

[ 0.204192] HPET mmap disabled

After this patch:

dmesg output with the kernel command line parameter hpet_mmap=1

[ 0.203945] HPET mmap enabled

dmesg output with the kernel command line parameter hpet_mmap=0

[ 0.204652] HPET mmap disabled

Fixes: 3d035f580699 ("drivers/char/hpet.c: allow user controlled mmap for user processes")
