[PATCH 1/1] hv: Use only one txf buffer per channel and kmalloc on initialize

Hank Janssen hjanssen at microsoft.com
Mon Dec 13 21:14:21 UTC 2010


Correct issue with not checking kmalloc return value.
This fix now only uses one receive buffer for all hv_utils 
channels, and will do only one kmalloc on init and will return
with a -ENOMEM if kmalloc fails on initialize.

And properly clean up memory on failure.

Thanks to Evgeniy Polyakov <zbr at ioremap.net> for pointing this out.
And thanks to Jesper Juhl <jj at chaosbits.net> and Ky Srinivasan 
<ksrinivasan at novell.com> for suggesting a better implementation of
my original patch.
