can you try the latest from http://people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/Fedora/FC3/

There's a scsi refcount bugfix that should have fixed this issue.

Comment 7 Davide Rossetti 2005-01-03 09:47:45 EST
sorry, the attachment is from the pen connection, so only a kobject_register()
WARN, not a Oops as reported in the comment.
Now if I disconnect the pen I get the Oopps:

 printing eip:

Comment 8 Davide Rossetti 2005-01-03 11:44:16 EST
the errno returned by kobject_register is:
#define	EEXIST		17	/* File exists */
so there is something strange in the kobj string.

I'm rebuild this very kernel with removed #undef DEBUG in kobject.c.

of course the fact that add_partition() doesn't check kobject_register for
errors does not help :)

	p->kobj.parent = &disk->kobj;
	p->kobj.ktype = &ktype_part;
	disk->part[part-1] = p;

Comment 9 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 14:05:29 EDT
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.
