The final piece of the driver core name limit. We are about to remove
BUS_ID_SIZE.

Some patches may still be in your queue. Just to make sure, we will
finish our task this time: David, David, James, Takashi, can you please
give an update, or take care of removing the last instances, or let me
know if you want a patch, or let us know, if we should just change it to
"20".

  $ find . -name "*.[ch]" | xargs grep '[^_]BUS_ID_SIZE'
  ./drivers/mtd/nand/txx9ndfmc.c:	char mtdname[BUS_ID_SIZE + 2];
  ./drivers/scsi/scsi_transport_fc.c:	char bsg_name[BUS_ID_SIZE]; /*20*/
  ./arch/sparc/kernel/vio.c:	if (strlen(bus_id_name) >= BUS_ID_SIZE - 4) {
  ./sound/soc/txx9/txx9aclc.c:	char devname[BUS_ID_SIZE + 2];

Thanks a lot,
Kay

Subject: Driver Core: remove BUS_ID_SIZE

The name size limit is gone from the driver-core, this is
the removal of the last left-over.

Yep, I'm going to send a pull request including the fix for this soon
later.


thanks,

I have this queued for 2.6.31 but have been on jury duty for the last 2
weeks so I'm hoping to get the pull request to Linus today now that I'm
free.

Was very unimpressed with the first version of the patch I saw, which
would have given me a potential buffer overflow if I'd just hard-coded
the buffer size AFAICT.

The old one is gone, but seems you merged a new one with BUS_ID_SIZE :)

  ./drivers/mtd/maps/integrator-flash.c:#define SUBDEV_NAME_SIZE	(BUS_ID_SIZE + 2)

Thanks,
Kay

Hm, true :)

Catalin, can you test the following? 

Btw, I'm unconvinced by the existing error handling -- if
armflash_subdev_probe() fails, it doesn't look like _that_ subdev
actually gets cleaned up in the loop at 'subdev_err:'. So we don't
release the memory region (and neither do we free the newly-kmalloced
name).

In fact, do we still need a separate platform device and driver for ARM
systems? What does it provide that the physmap driver does (and can)
not?

Yes, it still works (with some remarks below).

If armflash_subdev_probe() fails, it cleans up after itself so there is
no need to handle it in the subdev_err loop. With your patch, however,
this should be done explicitly if the subdev probing fails. Something
like below:

(I cc'ed Russell as well since he wrote the integrator-flash driver and
may have comments)

I gave physmap a quick try on RealView boards and it seems to work fine
with the patch below. The only difference is the AFS partition parsing
probes string, though this is no longer used on ARM Ltd platforms (some
old ones still use it).

I'll test it a bit more and, if there are no other comments, I'll push a
patch to convert the ARM Ltd platforms to physmap (but that's for the
next merging window as I don't think I have time to test it well enough
now).


RealView: Convert the platform code to use the physmap flash driver

From: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com>

This platform was still using the integrator-flash driver but this
pretty much duplicates the physmap one.

Perhaps we should add the list of partition types to the
physmap_flash_data?

I think this would make sense.

Seems, it's the last one left. In case the "real" fix you are working
on is not ready to apply, care to push out a change, so we can finally
get rid of itl? Or let me know, and we can replace it with "20" along
with the removal from the driver core.

Thanks,
Kay
