Severe issues in 5.1 lpfc driver: Request update to 220.127.116.11
Last modified: 2014-06-18 04:01:09 EDT
This bug has been copied from bug #385351 and has been proposed
to be backported to 5.1 z-stream (EUS).
Is there an outlook for if/when this requested driver update will be released
in a RHEL5.1 kernel update?
Richard, this bug is on the list for inclusion on our next kernel update. Due to
security embargoes, etc,., I can't tell you that date here. Please contact your
IBM Partner Manager, or me directly.
A patch for this issue has been included in build 2.6.18-53.1.7.el5.
I have verified that this patch is in 2.6.18-53.1.8.el5, and successfully booted
that kernel on a system that has it's root filesystem on an lpfc device.

Laurie, I've just been notified for our EUS team that this fix has been pushed
out to around the end of March 2008.
