Description Stuart D Gathman 2016-02-03 10:07:03 EST
Description of problem:
Loading batman-adv module gets oops 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.modprobe batman-adv

Actual results:
kernel oops - but module still seems to work fine.  Kernel is tainted, which interferes with reporting other kernel bugs.

Expected results:
clean load

Additional info:

Sorry, this was on 4.3.3-301.  I'll check 4.3.4 soon.

Fixed with kernel-4.3.5-300.bz1303270.fc23.x86_64
Comment 5 Josh Boyer 2016-02-04 02:28:20 EST
Hm.  I find that surprising.  So with the single patch added and batman-adv loading, the oops goes away?  If so, that's great news but I'm not sure why it would matter.
Comment 6 Stuart D Gathman 2016-02-04 14:33:56 EST
I haven't tested 4.3.5 without the USB wifi leak patch, so maybe something in 4.3.5 fixed it.  However, maybe the oops is related to the USB wifi leak?  As batman-adv was being used with the USB wifi.

I'll test with 4.3.5-300 (without leak patch) when I get a chance.
Comment 7 Stuart D Gathman 2016-02-25 22:57:37 EST
I'm on 4.4.2 now, and the oops is still gone.  I don't think I'm going to go back to 4.3.5.  Closing with "current release".
