      Revert "ACPI: created a dedicated workqueue for notify() execution" · b976fe19
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This reverts commit 37605a69.
      
      Again.
      
      This same bug has now been introduced twice: it was done earlier by
      commit b8d35192, only to be reverted
      last time in commit 72945b2b
      
      .
      
      We must NOT try to queue up notify handlers to another thread than the
      normal ACPI execution thread, because the notifications on some systems
      seem to just keep on accumulating until we run out of memory and/or
      threads.
      
      Keeping events within the one deferred execution thread automatically
      throttles the events properly.
      
      At least the Compaq N620c will lock up completely on the first thermal
      event without this patch reverted.

      lkkbd: Remove my old snail-mail address · 1d08811d
      Jan-Benedict Glaw authored
      
      
      I moved to a different town and my old snail-mail address is invalid
      now.  Also, there's no need at all to have any address like that in
      the sources, so remove it completely.

      Fix generic fb_ddc i2c edid probe msg · 4be70390
      Linus Torvalds authored
      
      
      Benh points out that the msgs[0].flags entry never got initialized, and
      since it's an automatic stack allocation, it could have any random
      value, which is bad.
      
      Rewrite the initializer to explicitly initialize all fields of the small
      i2c_msg structure array we generate.  Just to keep it all obvious, let's
      handle msgs[1].buf in the same initializer while we're at it, instead of
      initializing that one separately later.
