RFE: show 0x after io= when entering module parameters
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
Afaik old versiosn of redhat used to show "io=0x " instead of just "io= ",
since I concider myself sorta experienced and this just bit me (stupid) it
might be a good idea to add it for new users.
Proposed patch is in review.
will be in in next release.
FYI: I don't see this (0x) in beta4 for the mcdx driver, this one has a
parameter list like:
And there are more like this, so I don't think this can be fixed easily.
This will only do io= for the next release. Later, I will probably parse the
glob in module-info and take all the 0x prefixes from there, but it will be
Matt please apply the patch and resolve this bug now that 7 has shipped.
Verified that it shows up for ne module in current CVS.
FYI, it already ws fixed for ne and the likes in 7.0. The problem is mscdx and
others which don't have an io=parameter but an other hex parameter.
verified that some devices (like ne2k) have proper 'io=0x' & 'irq=' lines, but
other devices don't ... this behavior is not consistent across modules ... a
better more consistent implementation may be implemented in a future release ...
