I confused this bz with the one requesting new pci ids.
This bz is for a driver change required to support the new pci ids.
The first three patches are already in the kernel. The last patch is the only one left.
Tziporet, could we get your confirmation that you will be able to provide us with additional testing feedback once this request has been approved and a test build including the proposed patch set is available?
Approved to send testing feedback
What is the "test build" you referring to? Please elaborate so we will be able to provide it
Thank you for the confirmation.
RE: Test build. Once this request has been approved and the proposed patch committed, our developers will be able to build a 'test build' of the kernel which will include the patches that should resolve this issue. Once that test build is ready, i or someone else will provide you access to it so you can verify that the new build does in fact resolve your issue.
Sure we will test such a kernel.
BTW - we already have newer patches - can we submit those now instead of the older patches?
You can download this test kernel from http://people.redhat.com/dzickus/el5
