The options,

CONFIG_CFAG12864B=y
CONFIG_CFAG12864B_RATE=20

causes a crash at boot in 2.6.20-rc3-mm1. I don't have the hardware
associated with the options. It looks like it just doesn't have guards
to detect if the hardware doesn't exists.

Here is the crash,

As Daniel Walker pointed out, the driver doesn't probe for the
hardware because it just uses the parallel port for output (there
isn't any kind of input).

The driver shouldn't continue execution and using
ks0108_writecontrol() (which writes to the parallel port) after the
"ks0108: ERROR: parport didn't find 888 port" message.

Will check.

Thanks for the warning,
Miguel

The problem is easy:

ks0108_init() prints the error message and exit with -EINVAL, so the
module isn't loaded properly.

However, cfag12864b_init() is called, although ks0108 failed. It
returns 0 and after a while cfag12864b calls ks0108_writecontrol()
which dereferences the uninitialized pointer ks0108_parport:

	parport_write_control(ks0108_parport, byte ^ (bit(0) | bit(1) | bit(3)));

Why is cfag12864b_init() called if ks0108 module didn't load properly?
Is that normal? If so, how a module should alarm other modules about
it failed loading?

An easy solution woule be to export a function at ks0108.c like
ks0108_inited() that would return if the module was properly inited or
not. Is there any better solution?

Regards,
Miguel

I don't know if this matters, but I had this driver built-in , and not a
module ..

Well, I use the word "module" for both cases: When I modprobe
cfag12864b, if ks0108 fails, it doesn't get linked. So I thought the
same happen for built-in drivers (in other words, I didn't think
cfag12864b would be linked if ks0108 failed).

So I'm waiting until someone tell me what is the right way to avoid
drivers like cfag12864b been inited if their dependencies failed.

Anyway, thanks for discovering the bug (I wouldn't have discovered it
as my motherboard has parallel port ;).

I have a parallel port, but I don't have the cfag12864b or ks0108 .. I
think the simplest way to fix it would be to add a flag to ks0108 that
signals successful initialization , then force cfag12864b to check for
that ..

I found this by booting a make allyesconfig kernel ..

In fact, you don't need the cfag12864b display, as the driver just
needs the parallel port for output (you can put some LEDs attached to
the parallel port to check the driver's operations and it will be
fine).

BTW, why ks0108 didn't find the 888 parallel port? Haven't you got such number?

Sure, that won't be a problem; however, maybe there is other better way (?).

You know I think your right, it may not have a parallel port.. It's so
common I tend to take it for granted .

When you build the driver as a module the module loader will only load
what is needed, and in order .. When the same driver is built-in the
module_init() becomes a device_initcall() , and all device_initcall's
get executed .. So you have to expect that cfag12864b drivers initcalls
will run eventually and will need to be careful about it's
initialization.

Sadly, parallel ports are dying :(

That is the real problem, indeed.

All right, if there is no other better way to avoid that, I will send
the patch soon.

Ok, here it is the patch, just a draft.

I have checked the Makefile to ensure that ks0108 was being called before than cfag12864b at boot, still, I'm not sure and I don't know if this will prevent the crash if ks0108 fails to init.

Daniel, please test it.
