Description of problem:
I have an HP 630e DVDRW drive which I connect to my system via USB.
When using it to burn DVDs with the afforementioned kernel, eventually
an oops is guaranteed, though the amount of time is variable.
Sometimes it gets almost all the way finished, and other times it
oopses very quickly. I also sometimes see oopses when I attach or
remove the device from the system. After the oops occurs, the system
can not be shut down cleanly. It hangs during or after stopping
PCMCIA services. Several times, the system crashed completely before
I had a chance to do anything.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use the DVDRW drive
2. wait patiently... ;-)
Actual Results: oops
Expected Results: no oops
I'll attach an oops momentarily...

Oh, I forgot to mention that this problem does NOT occur when using
kernel-2.6.8-1.521, nor do I experience problems when using the drive
under (shudder) Windows. I have not tested it with any of the other
Fedora kernel RPMs.
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.
