Description Brian Smith 2004-04-24 11:27:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.2)

Description of problem:
In /usr/src/linux/drivers/net/sk_g16.c it causes a make modules to
fail with compiler error.

The fix is to change sb to skb on line 1285 from:
  memcpy_toio((tmdp->u.buffer & 0x00ffffff) + sb->len, pad, len-skb->len);
  memcpy_toio((tmdp->u.buffer & 0x00ffffff) + skb->len, pad,

Granted this is minor, and I don't use this driver, but someone might. :)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /usr/src/linux
2. make modules


Actual Results:  compiler error

Expected Results:  all modules made w/o error

Hello, Brian.  A fixed version of that driver is upstream in 2.6.  But
the version whose source is included in RHEL3 is obsolete and is not
built in RHEL3 distributions because CONFIG_OBSOLETE is not enabled.
