Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 201095
reserve= no longer being respected.
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:36 EDT
Description of problem:
I have an orinoco_cs wavelan PC Card that requires reserve=0xff490000,0x00aff000
to be added to the kernel parameters to boot without a hang. As of about a
month ago, an update of Rawhide made the hang happen even when reserve= is
added. The hang happens pre-init, so I suspect that the kernel is ignoring the
reserve=, or that the PCMCIA code is no longer following through with the
request. The log below shows that the quoted range is not being reserved.
I don't yet know whether this is Fedora-specific or also upstream.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time, on boot. The output just before the hang is:
pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 0
cs: memory probe 0xff400000-0xffcfffff: excluding 0xff400000-0xff48ffff
This happens with current linux-2.6.git too, so it's not Fedora-specific.
Sorry this bug hasn't seen any attention. Are you still having problems with
