Description Jay Fenlason 2008-11-03 11:35:49 EST
Description of problem:
      firewire: Survive more than 256 bus resets
      firewire: fix struct fw_node memory leak
      firewire: fw-ohci: don't leak dma memory on module removal
      firewire: fw-sbp2: fix races
      firewire: fw-ohci: initialization failure path fixes                   
      firewire: fw-sbp2: delay first login to avoid retries

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.See the individual bugs.
Actual results:
Machine hangs, memory leaks, firewire disks don't get detected.

Expected results:
No hangs, no leaks, disks work as expected.

Additional info:
All of these are in 2.6.28-rc3.  Backporting them is low-risk and simple.
Comment 1 Jay Fenlason 2008-11-04 13:15:21 EST
firewire: fix ioctl() return code
firewire: fix setting tag and sy in iso transmission
firewire: fw-sbp2: fix another small generation access bug
firewire: fw-sbp2: enforce s/g segment size limit
Comment 2 Jay Fenlason 2008-11-05 14:10:58 EST
The "enforce s/g segment size limit" one proved hard to backport, so I dropped it.  The rest were trivial.

in kernel-2.6.18-124.el5
