Comment 1 Josh Boyer 2012-07-04 11:38:35 EDT
The fix for this issue went into the 3.4-rc5 kernel:

[jwboyer@zod linux-2.6]$ git describe --contains 13d518074a952d33d47c428419693f63389547e9
v3.4-rc5~28^2~11
[jwboyer@zod linux-2.6]$

All supported Fedora releases are on the 3.4 final or newer kernel.  Fedora is not impacted.
