CPU until infinite.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with kernel-2.6.5-1.322

Actual Results: pdflush takes 100% CPU

I have no seen this bug with kernel 2.6.4-1.305 and this bug happends
with all 2.6.5 kernels.
My computer is a laptop Compaq Presario 1722.
Please post vmstat 5 output when this happens. Also try getting a
thread dump with Sysrq.
Could be due to this one: ChangeSet@1.1713.26.299?
fixed in the 2.6.9 updates ?
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
