      x86: fix up system call numbering nit · 8cbd84f2
      Linus Torvalds authored
      As pointed out by Jiri Slaby: when I resolved the the 32-bit x85 system
      call entry tables for prlimit (due to the conflict with fanotify), I
      forgot to add the numbering in comments that we do for every fifth entry.

      docbook: fix fatal error from libata · 3d2be54b
      Randy Dunlap authored
      'make htmldocs' has a fatal error when processing libata.xml, as seen
      below.  The string "Example patterns:" (or any string with "example.*:"
      in it AFAIK) causes some part of the doc generation tool chain to try to
      produce an <informalexample> block without a beginning <para>, but
      there is an ending </para> generated, which throws things out of kilter.
      I don't even know where (what program) this is happening in.
      I searched in docproc and xmlto and in some XML stylesheets without
      finding anything.  If anyone can give me pointers about this, please do.
      Until this is fixed, let's just spell "Example" as "Sample"
      and match up the double quotation marks while there.

      jfs: don't allow os2 xattr namespace overlap with others · aca0fa34
      Dave Kleikamp authored
      It's currently possible to bypass xattr namespace access rules by
      prefixing valid xattr names with "os2.", since the os2 namespace stores
      extended attributes in a legacy format with no prefix.
      This patch adds checking to deny access to any valid namespace prefix
      following "os2.".

      USB: serial: fix stalled writes · b58af406
      Johan Hovold authored
      As David VomLehn points out, it was possible to receive an interrupt
      before clearing the free-urb flag which could lead to the urb being
      incorrectly marked as busy.
      For the same reason, move tx_bytes accounting so that it will never be
      Note that the free-flags set and clear operations do not need any
      additional locking as they are manipulated while USB_SERIAL_WRITE_BUSY
      is set.

      USB: remove fake "address-of" expressions · b409214c
      Alan Stern authored
      Fake "address-of" expressions that evaluate to NULL generally confuse
      readers and can provoke compiler warnings.  This patch (as1412)
      removes three such fake expressions, using "#ifdef"s in their place.

      USB: fix thread-unsafe anchor utiliy routines · b3e67044
      Christian Lamparter authored
      This patch fixes a race condition in two utility routines
      related to the removal/unlinking of urbs from an anchor.
      If two threads are concurrently accessing the same anchor,
      both could end up with the same urb - thinking they are
      the exclusive owner.
      Alan Stern pointed out a related issue in
      "The URB isn't removed from the anchor until it completes
       (as a by-product of completion, in fact), which might not
       be for quite some time after the unlink call returns.
       In the meantime, the subroutine will keep trying to unlink
       it, over and over again."
