Description of problem:
After booting a Dell PE2650 with RHEL4 beta2, dmesg has the following
"scb2_flash: warning - can't reserve rom window, continuing
CFI: Found no SCB2 BIOS Flash device at location zero
scb2_flash: flash probe failed!"
2* 2.4 Ghz /12GB memory /PERC3Di/PERC4DC/Intel1000MT/2*BCM570X/AIC-
This problem was found by one of our test groups. I haven't
personally had a chance to look at it yet, but I suspect this is a
message that is printed when the kernel is probing for a certain
flash device that isn't supposed to be in the system... not sure why
it is so verbose with the messages if this is something that isn't in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot system with RHEL4 beta 2
2. examine dmesg
Actual Results: error message seen
Expected Results: no error messages
this driver shouldnt have been enabled. disabled in cvs.
Looks good, thanks!
Verified fixed in RHEL 4 pre-rc1. Closing. Thanks.
