Subject: patch "tools/firmware/ihex2fw: Simplify next record offset calculation" added to driver-core-testing


This is a note to let you know that I've just added the patch titled

    tools/firmware/ihex2fw: Simplify next record offset calculation

to my driver-core git tree which can be found at
    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-core.git
in the driver-core-testing branch.

The patch will show up in the next release of the linux-next tree
(usually sometime within the next 24 hours during the week.)

The patch will be merged to the driver-core-next branch sometime soon,
after it passes testing, and the merge window is open.

If you have any questions about this process, please let me know.

Subject: tools/firmware/ihex2fw: Simplify next record offset calculation

We can convert original expression for 'writelen" to use ALIGN as
follows:

    (p->len + 9) & ~3 => (p->len + 6 + 3) & ~3 => ALIGN(p->len + 6, 4)

Now, subsituting "p->len + 6" with "p->len + sizeof(p->addr) +
sizeof(p->len)" we end up with the same expression as used by kernel
couterpart in linux/ihex.h:

    ALIGN(p->len + sizeof(p->addr) + sizeof(p->len), 4)

That is a full size of the record, aligned to 4 bytes. No functional
change intended.
