2.6.33-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Giuliano Pochini <pochini@xxxxxxxx>

commit b721e68bdc5b39c51bf6a1469f8d3663fbe03243 upstream.

This patch fixes a division by zero error in the irq handler.

There is a small window between the hw_params() callback and when
runtime->frame_bits is set by ALSA middle layer. When another substream is
already running, if an interrupt is delivered during that window the irq
handler calls pcm_pointer() which does a division by zero. The patch below
makes the irq handler skip substreams that are initialized but not started
yet. Cc to Clemens Ladisch because he proposed an alternate fix.

For more information, please read the original thread in the linux-kernel
mailing list: http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/2/2/187
