Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/4] fs: Remove FIRMWARE_PREALLOC_BUFFER from kernel_read_file() enums
Date: Fri, 10 Jul 2020 14:00:32 -0700	[thread overview]

Hi Kees,

This patch fails during booting of my system - see below.

The assumption that *buf is always NULL when id != 
READING_FIRMWARE_PREALLOC_BUFFER doesn't appear to be correct.
I get unhandled page faults due to this change on boot.
