Nvidia patch and ALLOW_NV_SUSPEND override got silently dropped
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:19:53 EST
Description of problem:
One of the F8 common issues was "Suspend/Resume Problem With Nvidia cards"
The patch for this issue (and the ALLOW_NV_SUSPEND override) got silently dropped.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is the commit that dropped the patch for this issue (and the override) in
the F8 tree (even removing it from the rpm changelog!):
As far as I can see, this patch and the override have never been added to the
Shouldn't the removal of the patch and the override be somehow documented or
publicized, especially since the issue and the override were publicized?
Secondly, wouldn't it be polite to make some noise (e.g. in /var/log/messages)
if the deprecated ALLOW_NV_SUSPEND override is detected?
(Of course, this all assumes the patch concerning this issue was deliberately
dropped, but that isn't really clear.)
Option like this need to be directed upstream; there is little point Fedora
alone carrying a distro option like this. Can you please email the pm-utils
mailing list and explain the problem. When it's upstream, I will release a
snapshot for F9. Thanks.

Actually I plan to add the patch back to the spec, because I did not remove it
intentionally and the package is still in testing. Afaik, the patch was never
intended to be added to any other release than F8, therefore it does not need to
be added to upstream, e.g. the patch was not applied to devel iirc, which is why
I removed it by accident.
