Description Linda Wang 2006-12-11 10:43:40 EST
Description of problem:
A previous e1000 update removed its reboot notifier.  This change was
made to the upstream driver in response to another upstream change
which made it unnecessary.  Unfortunately, it was/is still necessary
in the 2.6.9 kernel where RHEL4 is based.
