I had a quick look at the patch. Looks good overall. I think you should be able
to use the buffer allocated in struct drivetemp_data (named smartdata). Maybe
rename it to something more generic. If it needs to be dma-aligned, maybe we
can use kzalloc() to allocate it. Only reason I didn't use it for vpd was because
that needed 1024 bytes.

Definitely something we'll need to look into. Do you have a traceback ?
