Putting in NEEDINFO pending upstream code & acceptance.
Comment 2 IBM Bug Proxy 2009-03-12 23:10:26 EDT
I have not completed testing on the EEH patch for 48192 and addressing some issues with the patch. I will not make the deadline to mainline.

I will give an update when testing and issues are resolved.
Comment 3 Tom Coughlan 2009-09-23 15:14:01 EDT
Is this in 2.6.31? 

If not, then get the patches upstream, and re-open this BZ providing a backport to RHEL 6 kernel 2.6.31.
