2.6.33: tpm_tis + iTPM still broken
Hi list... Short version: Last summer a few patches floatet on LKML which enabled the Intel TPM (iTPM) to work with the tpm_tis driver. However, now, more than half a year later vanilla 2.6.33 is still unusable with iTPMs. Long version: iTPM do not play as nice with tpm_tis. There was a patch set published ... 3 Mar 2010 08:26

[PATCH] rtc-coh901331: Fix braces in resume code.
The else part of the if statement is indented but does not have braces around it. It clearly should since it uses clk_enable and clk_disable which are supposed to balance.

[PATCH 4/4] cpuset,mm: use rwlock to protect task->mempolicy and mems_allowed
if MAX_NUMNODES > BITS_PER_LONG, loading/storing task->mems_allowed or mems_allowed in task->mempolicy are not atomic operations, and the kernel page allocator gets an empty mems_allowed when updating task->mems_allowed or mems_allowed in task->mempolicy.
