Broken source file in v2.4.7 sources

From: Nigel Bennington (

Hi, I hope I've addressed this bug report to the right people...

In the sources for v2.4.7, as current yesterday (30/Jun/2001), the file


refers to the sem member of a variable defined as being of type IO_Request_T

tracking this backwards, it maps to the structure struct request, defined in
the file


this struct does not contain a member sem, although it did in v2.4.3 (the
only other kernel sources I have),

this means that the DAC960.c file is broken in the 2.4.7 kernel.

Hope this helps.

p.s. Is 2.4.7 considered a stable release, or should I be looking at
something between 2.4.3 and 2.4.7?

Thanks in advance,

Nigel Bennington.
