Description Alasdair Kergon 2005-04-11 13:47:00 EDT
Here's a trivial fix to the emc hardware
handler module. The old code memset the hardware handler
structure to zero AFTER it had initialized the structure's
spinlock field to SPIN_LOCK_UNLOCKED.  The new patch moves the
memset into the hardware handler allocator.
The old code would probably only have a problem if someone
ran with spinlock debugging enabled, in which case SPIN_LOCK_UNLOCKED
contains the value SPINLOCK_MAGIC.
