Subject: [PATCH] Driver-Core: extend devnode callbacks to provide permissions
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 18th September 2009 21:01:12 UTC (over 7 years ago)
From: Kay Sievers 
Subject: Driver-Core: extend devnode callbacks to provide permissions

This allows subsytems to provide devtmpfs with non-default permissions
for the device node. Instead of the default mode of 0600, null, zero,
random, urandom, full, tty, ptmx now have a mode of 0666, which allows
non-privileged processes to access standard device nodes in case no
other userspace process applies the expected permissions.

This also fixes a wrong assignment in pktcdvd and a checkpatch.pl complain.
