[PATCH] 1039/1: EXPORT_SYMBOL(dma_spin_lock) for ALSA

Even I do not realy use any ISA code of ALSA on my iPAQ I need it for compilation. As I build ALSA as modules, the dma_spin_lock symbol is missing.

I have seen both definitions of dma_spin_lock (in kernel/dma.c and arch/arm/kernel/dma.c) same as EXPORT_SYMBOL in kernel/ksyms.c, but I think, exporting it in arch/arm/kernel/dma.c should be better then making confusion in kernel/ksyms.c

uhci.c didn't work well with USB storage. It would tend to stall
relatively quickly and sometimes locked up the system. It usually only
took me a couple of tries ripping a CD to reproduce the problem.

I took a long hard look at the locking in uhci.c and decided to clean
it up, fixing a couple of bugs along the way as well as documenting the
locking strategy.

With this patch applies, where I could only rip a CD a couple of times
before causing problems, I was able to rip a CD 12,000 times in a row
successfully, before I stopped it. Not a single error :)

[PATCH] LVM fixes.

Numerous LVM fixes & cleanups.
Gets things compiling again, and allegedly works according to feedback.
Mostly from Anders in absence of any maintainence by LVM people.

There are two critical problems with lvm in 2.5.2-pre11 (and earlier).
* ioctls on the chardev allocates a >4k lv_t on stack. if the ioctl is
LV_CREATE, LV_EXTEND, LV_REDUCE or LV_RENAME data is copied into this
and the task_struct will most certainly be corrupted.
* sizeof(lv_t) differs between user and kernelspace. The userspace version
of the lv_t structure is much smaller than the kernelspace version. This
leads to corruption of memory in the userspace application when an lv_t is
copied from kernelspace to userspace, as in "vgdisplay -v"

The following patch addresses these two issues. It puts the user-space
version of the lv_t into a substructure of the kernelspace version. When
communicating to userspace just the userlv_t part is used. This avoids the
allocation of the lv_t on the stack by allocation just a userlv_t instead.
