I definitely see the problem, this is my guess at the correct solution...
Comment 2 John W. Linville 2005-05-18 13:05:00 EDT
I have test kernels w/ the above patch here: 
Would you mind trying those kernels and posting the results here?  Thanks! 
Comment 3 cervajs 2005-05-25 05:38:14 EDT
sorry, but i cannot install fc4test3 due to unsupported sata controller :( (and
test the driver for NIC)
maybe i should fill another bug report
Comment 4 John W. Linville 2005-05-25 09:15:07 EDT
The patch has been picked-up in the official FC4 kernels...you should be OK w/ 
the next fc4test release.  I'm going to close this for now...please reopen if 
the problem persists past fc4test4.  Thanks!
