Re: [PATCH -v3 40/47] PCI: Add pci bus removal through /sys/.../pci_bus/.../remove

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi Yinghai,
	I found many other drivers assume that a pci bus won't disappear if
the corresponding PCI bridge device still exists. The sysfs interface proposed
here breaks that assumption and may cause many access-after-free issues.
So what's the purpose of this interface? Should we remove this interface or
enhance other drivers to avoid invalid memory access issues?
	Thanks!
	Gerry
