+Subject: sysfs: fix condition check in sysfs_drop_dentry()
+X-Git-Tag: v2.6.22-rc5~46
+X-Git-Url: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux%2Fkernel%2Fgit%2Ftorvalds%2Flinux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff_plain;h=6aa054aadfea613a437ad0b15d38eca2b963fc0a

+sysfs: fix condition check in sysfs_drop_dentry()
+
+The condition check doesn't make much sense as it basically always
+succeeds. This causes NULL dereferencing on certain cases. It seems
+that parentheses are put in the wrong place. Fix it.
