Race condition in thermal module, with memory leak fix
Last modified: 2004-11-04 13:47:37 UTC
Current acpi thermal driver doesn't care about pending task
when deleteing timer. The acpi_thermal_check() will still be called
by pending task and may set up another timer for it, even if thermal
module has been removed.
When remove thermal module, kfree(tz) should be called.
