Description Steve Snyder 2005-10-01 09:20:26 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/8.5 (X11; Linux i686; U; en)

Description of problem:
dmesg is filled with this message: "w83781d 1-0290: Starting device update".  
This constant stream of messages is caused by the W83781D hardware sensor driver 
 and is a result of CONFIG_HWMON_DEBUG_CHIP being enabled in the current FC4 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4 kernel
2.Load W83781D device driver
3.Run any application that monitors system health (e.g. gkrellm)
4.Run dmesg to show it is filled with the debug message

Actual Results:  running dmesg shows only repeated entried of this debug message, pushing out all 
other information.

Expected Results:  Massive output of driver debug information should not be enabled by default.

Additional info:

Please do not enable CONFIG_HWMON_DEBUG_CHIP in future kernel releases.

fixed in cvs, will be in next errata.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-11-10 14:40:06 EST
2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.

Thank you.
