Hm. I've seen a bunch of sysfs-related bugs since 2.6.19-1.2914, while
2.6.19-1.2913 was fine for a long time.

Similar traceback (goes through pmac_ide_probe) from the F7t1 (2.6.19-1.2914)
kernel on a 1st-gen 12" powerbook.

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.
