I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.
There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel? If you are please attach
an lsmod output as well as dmesg output.
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.
I think with latest kernel (kernel-126.96.36.199-76) this bug is resolved, but right
now my laptop is not in hand, maybe I can confirm this tommorrow.
I can confirm that this bug is resolved with kernel-188.8.131.52-76. I closed this
bug. Thanks a lot...
