Linus Torvald chews up kernel maintainer for introducing userspace bug

Bug 0

An anonymous reader writes "A kernel maintainer introduced a bug in the uvcvideo code while changing error codes.

"Commit f0ed2ce ([media] uvcvideo: Set error_idx properly for extended
controls API failures) of yours unfortunately causes user space to misbehave
on one of my test systems. Namely, there's no sound under KDE 4.9.4
(Tumbleweed version using pulseaudio) and there's a knotify4 process occupying
one of the CPU cores entirely 100% of the time." —"
