X86: intel_ips, check for kzalloc properly

[PATCH] SOUND: usb/endpoint, fix dangling pointer use
Stanse found that in snd_usb_parse_audio_endpoints, there is a dangling pointer dereference. When snd_usb_parse_audio_format fails, fp is freed, and continue invoked. On the next loop, there is "fp && fp->altsetting == 1 && fp->channels == 1" test, but fp is set from the last iteration (but is bogus) and thus ilega... 21 Jun 2010 11:19
[RFC][PATCH] PM: Avoid losing wakeup events during suspend
On Sun, 20 Jun 2010, David Brownell wrote: Can we put this more directly: the problem is that the *SYSTEM ISN'T FULLY SUSPENDED* when the hardware wake event triggers?

[PATCH] USB: isp1362-hcd, fix double lock
Stanse found that isp1362_sw_reset tries to take a isp1362_hcd->lock, but it is already held in isp1362_hc_stop. Avoid that by introducing __isp1362_sw_reset which doesn't take the lock and call it from isp1362_hc_stop. isp1362_sw_reset is then as simple as lock -- __isp1362_sw_reset -- unlock.

[PATCH 3/2] Driver core: move platform device creation helpers to .init.text (if MODULE=n)
Platform devices should only be called by init code, so it should be possible to move creation helpers to .init.text -- at least if modules are disabled.

Entropy poolsize
I know grsecurity has a option for this but I don't want to patch my kernel with it at this time. I have been poking around random.c but I can't seem to figure out where .poolsize is assigned it's value and how to increase it. If someone could point it out that would be nice. Thank you for your time. -- To u... 4 Jul 2010 15:33
