Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 159979
Fix dangling pointer in acpi_pci_root_add()
Last modified: 2013-08-05 21:14:04 EDT
This is the RHEL3 equivalent of Bug 158920. An error in adding a PCI root bus
can leave a dangling pointer on the global PCI root bus list, which can
subsequently crash the system.

Patch from upstream ACPI driver
Patch posted for review (by Jim) on 16-Jun-2005.
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U6
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-32.9.EL).
Following up on comment #6. Do we have a machine that triggers this for rhel3
you can suggest to use for testing errata ?
