Description Atsushi Nemoto 2005-08-27 07:46:52 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur:2.6.11
Distribution:any
Hardware Environment:mips, possibly parisc, sh, sparc
Software Environment:32bit kernel
Problem Description:
put_unaligned/get_unaligned in include/asm-generic/unaligned.h use 'unsigned
long' to hold 64bit value.
So if sizeof(long) was smaller than 8, higher 32bit will be lost. 
Steps to reproduce:

get_unaligned() looks OK to me.

But yes, there is a seemingly-unneeded typecast in put_unaligned() which
I think will indeed truncate 64-bit values.

No, __get_unaligned() uses 'unsigned long val' to hold a 64bit value.
Also __uldp() loads a __u64 value but returns a 'unsigned long' value.

Sorry, I mean __uldq().

Closing this - we seem to have fixed __get_unaligned()
