Description Jim Paradis 2005-06-09 17:04:09 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.

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 ?
