Feedback Bugfix for debugging code 

Forum: PCMCIA driver development
Date: 1999, Nov 14
From: Steve Bonds sbonds

While trying to debug a PCMCIA installation problem, I discovered that several of the PCMCIA modules were segfaulting when pc_debug=<number> was used. I went through the code and discovered that in many modules (i82365.c, tcic.c, others) there is the following declaration:

static int pc_debug = PCMCIA_DEBUG;
followed by:
MODULE_PARM(pc_debug, "i");
which tries to change the value of the static variable. This causes segfaults.

I'm currently using version 3.0.14, though I have checked and the bug appears to still be present in version 3.1.4.
