Description Bastien Nocera 2003-07-28 15:04:03 EDT
The b44 driver from version 2.6.0-test2 of the kernel works without any changes
on the Red Hat 2.4.20-18.9 kernel. This would also allow to dump the bcm4400
driver from RHL beta.

Comment 2 Pekka Pietikäinen 2003-07-30 06:33:01 EDT
Supposedly queued for 2.4.22-pre10 and is in the 2.4 bk tree already.  
Comment 3 Barry K. Nathan 2003-10-12 15:09:26 EDT
Should this bug be closed now? b44 seems to be in the latest rawhide and taroon
kernels, and I've got a production machine running a rawhide kernel with b44
working successfully.

I guess it's fixed now.
