Description Jerone Young 2004-04-09 03:08:17 UTC
Description of problem:
Since kernel-2.6.4-303 to this new kernel-2.6.6-1.308 some redhat
patch to the kernel is causing the sk98lin driver to die! And who
knows what else. Here is the dump:

sk98lin: Network Device Driver v6.23
(C)Copyright 1999-2004 Marvell(R).
divert: allocating divert_blk for eth0
eth0: 3Com Gigabit LOM (3C940)
      PrefPort:A  RlmtMode:Check Link State
divert: freeing divert_blk for eth0

Now my network card is unusable with these jacked up redhat kernels.
But the kernel.org kernel works fine. PLEASE FIX!!!

Dupe of 118546.


Comment 2 Jerone Young 2004-04-09 18:05:14 UTC
This is not a dupe of 118546. Unlike that bug this bug doesn't even
allow you to load up the module in the first place. Plus I able to
load up the modules in kernel-2.6.4-300. It wasn't till
kernel-2.6.4-303 that all this started happening...I was hopping it
would be fixed when FC2 switched to 2.6.5 , and someone whould see
this. But it looks like it is a Redhat patch to the kernel that is
causing this, because the kernel.org 2.6.4 & 2.6.5 don't have this issue! 

Comment 3 Sahil Verma 2004-04-09 19:18:16 UTC
Identical EIP and backtrace.

Comment 4 Jerone Young 2004-04-15 00:47:03 UTC
Fixed in kernel- 


Comment 5 Jerone Young 2004-04-15 00:47:37 UTC
I meant kernel-2.6.5-322
