Merge branch 'floppy'
Merge floppy ioctl verification fixes from Denis Efremov. This also marks the floppy driver as orphaned - it turns out that Jiri no longer has working hardware. Actual working physical floppy hardware is getting hard to find, and while Willy was able to test this, I think the driver can be considered pretty much dead from an actual hardware standpoint. The hardware that is still sold seems to be mainly USB-based, which doesn't use this legacy driver at all. The old floppy disk controller is still emulated in various VM environments, so the driver isn't going away, but let's see if anybody is interested to step up to maintain it. The lack of hardware also likely means that the ioctl range verification fixes are probably mostly relevant to anybody using floppies in a virtual environment. Which is probably also going away in favor of USB storage emulation, but who knows. Will Decon reviewed the patches but I'm not rebasing them just for that, so I'll add a Reviewed-by: Will Deacon <email@example.com> here instead. * floppy: MAINTAINERS: mark floppy.c orphaned floppy: fix out-of-bounds read in copy_buffer floppy: fix invalid pointer dereference in drive_name floppy: fix out-of-bounds read in next_valid_format floppy: fix div-by-zero in setup_format_params
