Comment 1 Chuck Ebbert 2007-06-18 21:24:20 EDT
Please submit to the linux stable team for kernel 2.6.21.

Shane, submit this patch to the -stable linux kernel team. This will save
both of us some work if you do it this way. See the file:


in the linux source. We automatically update to the latest stable release for
Fedora kernels.
Comment 2 Shane Huang 2007-06-18 22:44:25 EDT
We have submitted the patch to the corresponding driver/kernel maintainer,
it has been accepted and will appear on stable kernel from 2.6.22
So when next Fedora distribution(FC8) use latest stable kernel(2.6.22 or 
it should include the patch.

I create this bug item so that we can trace this issue.
And I hope you can confirm that before FC8' release if possible. Thanks

Hello Shane,

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.


There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Has the patch been
accepted upstream and/or does the latest kernel still suffer this problem?

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.

Comment 5 Shane Huang 2007-09-19 23:37:25 EDT
The patch has been accepted and appears from linux-2.6.22.
Upstream commit:

So you can close this bug because I find FC8 Test 2 contains this patch.
