Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 203718
Lock issue with 2.6.17-1.2583.fc6, NetworkManager and ipw2100

Just about when X is about to start after booting, I can see some kernel
messages printed to the console.
This is a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop running today's Rawhide, which has an
ipw2100 wireless interface and a b44 ethernet interface, both controlled through
NetworkManager. The b44 interface was plugged in at the time, and network is
working fine using it.

Full dmesg output after booting
Still seeing the same upon every boot with 2.6.17-1.2611.fc6.
Reassigning to correct owner, kernel-maint.

I am sorry to say that I no longer own the hardware to test this patch on. I
only have access to ipw2200 and ipw3945 nowadays. Do any of the CC'ed persons
have access to ipw2100 hardware? Or John, did you test this patch already? (hard
to say as you were quite light on details ;-))
Test kernels w/ the patch from comment 4 are available here:
They were building last night when I left -- I posted the patch then so I
didn't forget. Untested as of now, I'll be booting-up my ipw2100-equipped box
Hmmm...well upon further review, this is already fixed in 2.6.19. This should
make it into fc6 when it gets rebased to 2.6.19.
