Is this reproducible? Yes
If so, how long does it (did it) take to reproduce it? the bootlog has the
Describe the steps: No steps needed
Is the system (not just the application) hung? No
This issue has been fixed in 2.6.20-rt8. Trying with
kernel-rt-2.6.21-0143.rc6rt0.x86_64.rpm to confirm.
I have verified that kernel kernel-rt-2.6.21-0143.rc6rt0.x86_64.rpm does not
have this BUG. the bug was initially reported on
Raising mirror request to track back porting the change from
kernel-rt-2.6.21-0143.rc6rt0.x86_64.rpm to kernel-rt-2.6.20-0119.rt8.x86_64.rpm
We are likely to soon be rebasing to 2.6.21. So no need to knock ourselves out
with the backport. For this reason, not currently assigning and intending to
close when we shift over to 21.

So, we will close this bug once the rebase to 2.6.21 is done!
ok, just for book-keeping purposes, I'm setting this to NEEDINFO state, just to
mark that we will wait for your confirmation that its addressed in the .21
kernel and you'll close then.

Checked the dmesg from a 2.6.21 rt kernel and did not find this issue. This has
been fixed in this kernel and guess this bug can be closed now.
