Thanks Valdis.  A fix for this has already been posted by
Nitin Gupta and Randy Dunlap here:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/2/10/383 

Another patch for a zcache memory leak has been posted here:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/2/10/306 

I'm sorry that multiple people have run into this in
multiple trees.
I have to admit I am a bit baffled as to what the proper
tree flow is for bug fixes like this, but would be happy
to "follow the process" if I am told what it is or if
someone can point me to a document describing it.

(Clearly making sure there are no bugs at all in a
submission is the best way to go, but I'm afraid
I can't claim to be perfect :-)

Thanks,
Dan

P.S. I suppose there isn't really a good reason for
CONFIG_ZCACHE to be tri-state as it really makes
no sense as a module because, if CONFIG_CLEANCACHE
is enabled, it will always get loaded.

When CONFIG_SYSFS is not enabled:

Fix can/softing build errors due to kconfig error.

kconfig tells us about a problem...

warning: (CAN_SOFTING_CS) selects CAN_SOFTING which has unmet direct dependencies (NET && CAN && CAN_DEV && HAS_IOMEM)

and then this is what happens due to that kconfig problem:

ERROR: "register_candev" [drivers/net/can/softing/softing.ko] undefined!
ERROR: "alloc_candev" [drivers/net/can/softing/softing.ko] undefined!
ERROR: "can_bus_off" [drivers/net/can/softing/softing.ko] undefined!

ERROR: "alloc_can_skb" [drivers/net/can/softing/softing.ko] undefined!

with this partial config:

# CONFIG_CAN_VCAN is not set
CONFIG_CAN_SLCAN=m
# CONFIG_CAN_DEV is not set
CONFIG_CAN_SOFTING=m
CONFIG_CAN_SOFTING_CS=m
# CONFIG_CAN_DEBUG_DEVICES is not set

I understand the output, but I don't understand the cause well enough.
CAN_SOFTING=m has a 'depends on CAN_DEV'
Is it then possible to have CAN_SOFTING=m _and not_ CAN_DEV ?

Yes.  From Documentation/kbuild/kconfig-language.txt:

  Note:
	select should be used with care. select will force
	a symbol to a value without visiting the dependencies.
	By abusing select you are able to select a symbol FOO even
	if FOO depends on BAR that is not set.
	In general use select only for non-visible symbols
	(no prompts anywhere) and for symbols with no dependencies.
	That will limit the usefulness but on the other hand avoid
	the illegal configurations all over.


CAN_SOFTING_CS does not depend on CAN_DEV. but it selects CAN_SOFTING,
which does depend on CAN_DEV, ... but CAN_DEV is not enabled.

I see.
The 'select CAN_SOFTING' was introduced because it makes no sense to
have CAN_SOFTING_CS alone 'for a normal user', although there is no
real dependency.
Is a 'select' then still a good option, since it feels like repeating
all dependencies from CAN_SOFTING in CAN_SOFTING_CS?
What about this?

It will present the Softing stuff in Kconfig as if CAN_SOFTING_CS really
depends on CAN_SOFTING, which is acceptible from a users perspective.

The statement 'select CAN_SOFTING' may ignore the dependancies
for CAN_SOFTING while selecting CAN_SOFTING_CS, as is therefore a bad choice.
