[PATCH][1/1] fs: wrong type for 'magic' argument in 'simple_fill_super()', fs/libfs.c

In the include file 'include/linux/fs.h' the 's_magic' field of the 'super_block' structure is declared as unsigned long. This causes a misbehaviour in the 'Integrity Measurement Architecture'... 1 Jun 2010 14:11
