[PATCH 3/6] cciss: check for msi in interrupt_not_for_us
Patch 3 of 4 cciss: check for msi in interrupt_no_for_us This patch checks to see if h->msi[x]_vector is set. We need this for a following patch. Without this check we process one interrupt then stop because in msi[x] mode the interrupt pending bit is not set. Not sure why we didn't encounter this before. From:... 28 May 2010 17:04

PCI quirk: AMD 780: work around wrong vendor ID on APC bridge

[PATCH 1/2] change sys_personality() to accept "unsigned int" instead of u_long
task_struct->pesonality is "unsigned int", but sys_personality() paths use "unsigned long pesonality". This means that every assignment or comparison is not right. In particular, if this argument does not fit into "unsigned int" __set_personality() changes the caller's personality and then sys_personality() returns... 28 May 2010 15:57

[PATCH 2/2] remove the bogus checks in sys_personality()->__set_personality() path
Cleanup, no functional changes. - __set_personality() always changes ->exec_domain/personality, the special case when ->exec_domain remains the same buys nothing but complicates the code. Unify both cases to simplify the code. - The -EINVAL check in sys_personality() was never right. If we assume that se... 28 May 2010 15:57
