  1. [PATCH 2/2] : Add local_irq_restore in error handling code

    From: Julia Lawall

    There is a call to local_irq_restore in the normal exit case, so it would
    seem that there should be one on an error return as well.

    The semantic patch that makes this change is as follows:

    expression l;
    expression E,E1,E2;

    Correctly spotted - but I decieded to go for below patch instead.

    Thanks,

    [MIPS] tlb-r4k: Nuke broken paranoia error test.

    Bug originally found and reported by Julia Lawall . I
    decieded that the whole error check was mostly useless paranoia and should
    be discarded. It would only ever trigger if r3k_have_wired_reg has a wrong
    value.
