SubjectRe: [PATCH] taging: speakup: remove volatile
Hello,

MugilRaj, le ven. 22 mai 2020 14:46:28 +0530, a ecrit:

Yes, but the proper fix is usually not to just remove the volatile
qualifier, which will not fix anything and potentially break things.

Fixing this requires really understanding what is at stake here, between
the read_buff_add function and the use of synth_full(). That goes
through interrupt handlers, tty disciplines, and the actual behavior
expected by speakup. Not a simple task, henceforth :)
