I definitely see the problem, this is my guess at the correct solution...
I have test kernels w/ the above patch here:
Would you mind trying those kernels and posting the results here? Thanks!
sorry, but i cannot install fc4test3 due to unsupported sata controller :( (and
test the driver for NIC)
maybe i should fill another bug report
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!
