Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

Description:
        device_PNP0C01 is device that returns failure on each
        write. However, it seems that internal echo from bash
        does not check return values...

Repeat-By:
        address@hidden:~# cat /etc/passwd > /proc/power/device_PNP0C01
        cat: write error: Level 3 reset
        address@hidden:~# echo `cat /etc/passwd` >
/proc/power/device_PNP0C01
        address@hidden:~#

        As you can see on strace bash -c 'echo ahoj >
/proc/power/device_PNP0C01'

fstat(1, {st_mode=0, st_size=0, ...})   = 0
mmap(0, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0)
= 0x40014000
write(1, "ahoj\n", 5)                   = -1 EL3RST (Level 3 reset)
dup2(10, 1)                             = 1
fcntl(10, F_GETFD)                      = 0x1 (flags FD_CLOEXEC)
close(10)                               = 0
munmap(0x40014000, 4096)                = 0
_exit(1)                                = ?
