2011-10-31drivers/base: transport_class explicitly requires EXPORT_SYMBOLPaul Gortmaker
This file was getting <linux/module.h> via an implicit include path, but we want to crush those out of existence since they cost time during compiles of processing thousands of lines of headers for no reason. Give it the lightweight header that just contains the EXPORT_SYMBOL infrastructure. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <>

2008-04-07[SCSI] transport_class: BUG if we can't release the attribute containerJames Bottomley
Every current transport class calls transport_container_release but ignores the return value. This is catastrophic if it returns an error because the containers are part of a global list and the next action of almost every transport class is to free the memory used by the container. Fix this by making transport_container_release a void, but making it BUG if attribute_container_release returns an error ... this catches the root cause of a system panic much earlier. If we don't do this, we get an eventual BUG when the attribute container list notices the corruption caused by the freed memory it's still referencing. Also made attribute_container_release __must_check as a reminder. Cc: Greg KH <> Signed-off-by: James Bottomley <>

2005-08-28[SCSI] fix transport class corner case after reworkJames Bottomley
If your transport class sets the ATTRIBUTE_CONTAINER_NO_CLASSDEVS flag, then its configure method never gets called. This patch fixes that so that the configure method is called with a NULL classdev. Also remove a spurious inverted comma in the transport_class comments. Signed-off-by: James Bottomley <>
2005-08-14[SCSI] correct transport class abstraction to work outside SCSIJames Bottomley
I recently tried to construct a totally generic transport class and found there were certain features missing from the current abstract transport class. Most notable is that you have to hang the data on the class_device but most of the API is framed in terms of the generic device, not the class_device. These changes are two fold - Provide the class_device to all of the setup and configure APIs - Provide and extra API to take the device and the attribute class and return the corresponding class_device Signed-off-by: James Bottomley <>

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
