Comment 1 Martin Garton 2006-05-18 15:45:01 EDT
Description of problem:

When inserting orinoco wireless card (pcmcia, not cardbus) there is a short
pause followed by a oops (or something similar)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.6.16-1.2206_FC6

How reproducible:

Insert card and wait a few seconds.

Additional info:

Unfortunately, I can't easily pinpoint when this started happening as I
previously believed it to be a hardware fault in the card.  However, I have
since had the card working on another machine with an ancient kernel.

All my other cards work fine, but are all cardbus.  So I don't know whether to
suspect orinoco, or non-cardbus pcmcia, or something else.

I have attached a pic of the stack trace that is displayed (or at least the part
of it I can see)

Is there any additional information I could provide that would help?

Comment 4 Martin Garton 2006-05-30 14:33:19 EDT
Just to be clear, previous comment "#3" is now with kernel 2.6.16-1.2230_FC6
Comment 5 Martin Garton 2006-06-02 17:38:05 EDT
Testing with upstream kernel using vanilla git from 2006/05/31 does not hang in
this way, and the wireless card works.

It does however say:

Should I take that problem upstream first and see if it impacts the crash in the
fedora kernel specific problem?
Comment 6 Martin Garton 2006-06-15 17:37:53 EDT
Tested again with 2.6.16-1.2273_FC6 and the kernel no longer freezes.  I don't
know exactly when this was fixes, but can now be closed IMO.
