Suspend hangs since 2.6.34
Hi, as of kernel 2.6.34 I sometimes get a strange hang during suspend to RAM. After echo mem > /sys/power/state, the suspend script hangs, Xorg eats 100% CPU, and the desktop is frozen.

[PATCH] uniform cdrom: fix mutex unlocking in /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info file
If the last if condition passes the cdrom_mutex mutex will not be unlocked. This patch fixes this and also removes the unnecessary doit label that was only invoked by the done label. Thanks.

[GIT PULL] ARM MSM regression fixes
Hi Linus, Here are two really simple regression fixes, one for mach-msm and the other for the MSM mmc driver. They are both for compile failures. Both appear to have been added during the merge window. There is one where it's not clear how it was exposed but the fixes are both simple. Daniel The following... 9 Jun 2010 13:05
