kernel bug at iwlwifi -> soft lockup
Last modified: 2008-06-12 14:01:00 EDT
Description of problem:
Tried to activate wlan0:0 resulted system lockup. The command was ifup wlan0:0.
This hasn't happened before. Probably related to kernel 188.8.131.52 or otherwise
hard to reproduce.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Create alias with static ip in addition to dynamically configured wlan0 and
activate manually (ifup wlan0:0) after wlan0 is up.
Steps to Reproduce:
None successful so far. Tried few times.
Working alias for wlan0.

Has this worked in the past? I imagine that this might confuse the mac80211
component, not sure...
It has worked in past and I haven't been able to reproduce it again. Currently
running on 184.108.40.206-92.fc8.
