patch attempting to fix problem
It appears that lookup_one_len() returns an error pointer sometimes. We should
make sure dir entry is valid before dereferencing. Not sure if the error should
be returned to sysfs_remove_group()'s caller.
I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.
There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while and the attached patch
appears to resolve the issue. Could you tell me if you are still having problems
with the latest kernel and if the patch was accepted upstream?
If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.
Current kernel is now 2.6.23 and reporter has not responded.
