Question Two questions re. wavelan2_cs driver on 2.4.0-test5 

Forum: PCMCIA driver development

From: Peter pfolk

I'm making the necessary changes to wavelan2_cs to work with 2.4.0-test5, and I had a couple questions:

 * Should init_dev_name(dev,node) really be a no-op on newer kernels?  I'd think it ought to be something like strncpy(dev->name,node->dev_name,IFNAMSIZ).

* kfree_s() is no longer part of the kernel. Did it do anything more than kfree() when it was still part of the kernel? What version was it removed in? Has kfree() always been around? In other words, should I simply #define kfree_s(a,b) kfree(a), or should I make a compatibility <linux/malloc.h> header that does the definition, conditionally on kernel version?
