2.6.33-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
From: Dean Nelson <email@example.com>
commit 7c9e2b1c4784c6e574f69dbd904b2822f2e04d6e upstream.
pcix_get_mmrbc() returns the maximum memory read byte count (mmrbc), if
successful, or an appropriate error value, if not.
Distinguishing errors from correct values and understanding the meaning of an
error can be somewhat confusing in that:
correct values: 512, 1024, 2048, 4096
errors: -EINVAL -22
The PCIBIOS_ errors are returned from the PCI functions generated by the
PCI_OP_READ() and PCI_OP_WRITE() macros.
In a similar manner, pcix_set_mmrbc() also returns the PCIBIOS_ error values
returned from pci_read_config_[word|dword]() and pci_write_config_word().
Following pcix_get_max_mmrbc()'s example, the following patch simply returns
-EINVAL for all PCIBIOS_ errors encountered by pcix_get_mmrbc(), and -EINVAL
or -EIO for those encountered by pcix_set_mmrbc().
This simplification was chosen in light of the fact that none of the current
callers of these functions are interested in the specific type of error
encountered. In the future, should this change, one could simply create a
function that maps each PCIBIOS_ error to a corresponding unique errno value,
which could be called by pcix_get_max_mmrbc(), pcix_get_mmrbc(), and
Additionally, this patch eliminates some unnecessary variables.
