Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 469710
Various firewire bugs fixed upstream
Last modified: 2014-08-31 19:28:54 EDT
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.See the individual bugs.
Machine hangs, memory leaks, firewire disks don't get detected.
No hangs, no leaks, disks work as expected.
All of these are in 2.6.28-rc3. Backporting them is low-risk and simple.
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
The "enforce s/g segment size limit" one proved hard to backport, so I dropped it. The rest were trivial.
