Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240714
frequent ioctl are not received by driver
Last modified: 2008-02-07 23:27:17 EST
Description of problem:
When an IOCTL is fired in a for loop I observed that even though the
application could fire all ioctl and its return value was 0, the driver didn't
receive all the IOCTL. Why? Where the missing IOCTL had been lost? To avoid
this what should be done in driver? When the application open the device for
operation it didn't specify the NONBLOCK flag.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.6.18
Steps to Reproduce:
How was this tested?
While working on SDIO card driver to test the hardware with the Open Source SDIO
subsytem, modified the Open Source sample card driver and written an Program on
user space to fire the IOCTL.
If run on multiple CPUs the counts will be wrong unless atomic data types and
operations (like atomic_inc()) are used. Other than that, I don't know what
might be wrong without seeing the source code.
