Hi Marcelo,

Greg> Patch looks good, want to send it to Marcelo, or do you want me
Greg> to?

Here I do, speaking in the name of the I2C & LM Sensors development team
:)

A patch to i2c-dev follows, built against 2.4.22-pre10, which brings
the following changes:

* Fix a user/kernel bug discovered by Robert T. Johnson.
  Patch by Sergey Vlasov.
* Fix a memory leak discovered by Robert T. Johnson.
  Patch by Sergey Vlasov and me.
* Two code optimizations/cleanups.
  Patches by Sergey Vlaslov and me, respectively.
* Bonus: two lines with changed whitespace, but you don't care.
  Patches by me and Robert T. Johnson, respectively.

These changes should also be made to i2c-CVS and Linux 2.6's i2c
subsystem. I will commit the changes to i2c-CVS while Greg KH will
submit a modified patch to Linus.

The final patch was tested by me (compiles and runs with no apparent
drawback) and approved by Sergey Vlaslov and Greg KH.
Please apply.

Thanks,
Jean
