Description of problem:
On boot the kernel panics when the USB driver is loaded. It happens
repeatedly. The machine is an IBM NetVista P3-1G desktop machine with no
known hardware problems which has recently passed an extensive memtest86 scan.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Kernel oops reported, but machine keeps running.
Expected Results: No Oops.
It seems that I was too hasty with this bug report.
allow insmod_t debugfs_t:dir search;
Adding the above to the policy fixed the bug. I suggest that we add the
following to avoid future problems:
No, wait, I want to see the oops. The uhci-hcd should recover gracefuly
if debugfs is not available. It's completely legal.
As for policy, it's a regression. I remember we fixed policy for debugfs
in FC4, when DaveJ enabled usbmon on my request.
Fixed in selinux-policy-*1.25.4-10
Kernel needs to be fixed.
Very good. Russell, I need that oops.
