So, here is something that I think should go into the next 2.6.22.
A proper fix is already in 2.6.23-git-du-jour.

In function âali_init_chipsetâ:

warning: ârevâ is used uninitialized in this function

Yes, it is indeed used uninitialized, and that is dangerous,
given that I do have a chipset that uses pata_ali.ko and
currently runs a 'broken' has not exploded yet, though.

I could not backport and create a patch because struct pci_dev
does not have the ->revision field in 2.6.22 yet. Ideas?
