Candidate #1 - not using set_fs()

Same as in bug 158852, only somewhat lighter touch than RHEL 4:
 - All definitions are in the drivers/usb/devio.c

Comment 20 Pete Zaitcev 2005-10-18 05:44:39 UTC
I need Dell to test the kernel from this URL:
The patch seems simple, but we always test actual patch and actual build,
just in case of a typo somewhere.

Comment 21 Ernie Petrides 2005-10-18 06:39:33 UTC
Fixing "hardware" field and putting into NEEDINFO state.

Please test PeteZ's fix as requested in comment #20.

Comment 24 Ernie Petrides 2005-11-23 02:12:57 UTC
I don't see any bugzilla comment verifying that the testing was completed
successfully (as requested in comment #20).  Reverting to NEEDINFO.

Comment 25 Ernie Petrides 2005-11-28 23:03:24 UTC
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U7
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-37.11.EL).

Comment 27 Larry Troan 2005-12-15 03:54:22 UTC
Public Bug. All future communication should occur in this bug 158819.

From IT72803:
Event posted 02-07-2006 12:45am by Byju_Michael
not fixed in RHEL3 U7 

Comment 30 Pete Zaitcev 2006-02-08 08:09:04 UTC
It totally was fixed. What is the actual kernel release which prompted the
comment by Byju? How did they test? And come to think about it, nobody
acted upon my request to test (comment #20) and Ernie's reminders.

Comment 31 Charles Rose 2006-02-15 14:57:07 UTC

This is regressed with  RHEL 3 U7 post beta1 kernel 2.4.21-40.EL kernel and the
issue is fixed. 

Comment 32 Ernie Petrides 2006-02-15 20:12:05 UTC
Charles Rose, please clarify your last comment.  I don't understand
what you meant by "regressed".  As far as I know, this problem was
fixed in U7 before the beta candidate (-38.EL) was built and it
remains fixed in the most recent U7 respin (-40.EL).

Thanks in advance.  -ernie

Comment 33 Charles Rose 2006-02-22 06:05:38 UTC
Sorry for the confusion. The issue was fixed in -38.EL and was verified again
with -40.EL.
