Description Kars de Jong 2005-06-05 09:18:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When connecting a Kensington USB webcam, the kernel complains about a missing release callback in the driver.

But, what is worse, when actually using it, it seems the driver calls a function which may sleep from interrupt context.

The camera does seem to work though.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in webcam
2. Start gnomemeeting (for instance)


Actual Results:  Lots of entries in the kernel log file.

Expected Results:  No entries in the kernel log file.

Additional info:

This is the message in the log after plugging the camera in:

drivers/usb/media/se401.c: SE401 usb camera driver version 0.24 registering
videodev: "Kensington VideoCAM 67016" has no release callback. Please fix your driver for proper sysfs support, see http://lwn.net/Articles/36850/

And this is the message that keeps being logged when the camera is in use:

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 19:40:44 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Kars de Jong 2005-08-27 13:14:06 UTC
Sorry, I no longer run Fedora, so I can't test this anymore.
However, with Debian (running kernel 2.6.8-2-k7) the "release callback" warning
is present there too, but not the other "sleeping function called from invalid
context at mm/slab.c:2088" warning.
