[PATCH] memory corruption in i2o

Some weeks back "VDA@port.imtp.ilyichevsk.odessa.ua" reported in


a bug in an i2o header file that causes kernel memory corruption.
The obvious fix was posted several times; this one from Andreas Dilger


is typical. The fix appears not to have been picked up in 2.4.17-pre8.
There is no i2o maintainer listed in MAINTAINERS.

With a 2.4.17 release candidate coming up, it's probably time to
apply it.

The original posting noted several other similar bugs, for which it
and subsequent postings suggested fixes, e.g.


Is anybody going to pick up _any_ of these fixes, or do they just rot
until enough kernel crashes get reported with enough detail to implicate
the identified bugs?
