Hi.

Tried out 2.6.28-rc2 today on my EEE 901 and my Option Icon 225 and got
the following oops:

Stock 2.6.28-rc2 + ec_all.patch from lkml + rt2860sta driver (though I
can't see how either of these are implicated I can try without if
necessary).

It looks like there are only a couple of changes since 2.6.27 to this
driver so I can try reverting both of them, but neither looks especially
likely? (8ef5ba63b94b04b182ac4a6009dbbf1406beb3c5 &

Something passed a null device pointer to dev_printk().

I think that hso_create_rfkill() is the culprit here (and has been
inlined into hso_create_net_device()).  It's using hso_dev->dev as the
first argument to dev_err() and it doesn't look like that field is
initialised except by kzalloc.  At a guess, it should be using
&hso_dev->usb->dev.

Yup, this appears to be the problem, thanks. I think &hso_net->net->dev
is more intuitive for the error message, so I've used that. I've also
added missing line endings on the error messages and set our local
rfkill structure element to NULL on failure so we don't try to call
rfkill_unregister on driver removal if we failed to register at all.

The patch below Works For Me (TM); the device is detected fine, can be
removed without problems and connects ok. I'll have a prod at why the
rfkill stuff isn't working next, but I believe this cleanup of the error
handling is appropriate no matter what the issue with registration is.

Ok, I believe this is due to the addition of rfkill_check_duplicity in
rfkill and the fact that test_bit actually returns a negative value
rather than the postive one expected (which is of course equally true).
So when the second WLAN device (the hso device, with the EEE PC WLAN
being the first) comes along rfkill_check_duplicity returns a negative
value and so rfkill_register returns an error. Patch below fixes this
for me.

The hso driver should probably be claiming to be a WWAN device as well,
given that it's GSM/HSDPA rather than 802.11.

Good catch, I screwed up on that one.  Please forward it with my ack to
linux-wireless@kernel.org and to Ivo van Doorn <IvDoorn@gmail.com> and John
