Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 501064
[Stratus 4.9 bug] panic reading /proc/bus/input/devices during input device removal
Last modified: 2015-07-14 00:27:04 EDT
This bugzilla is being used for the work being done in 4.9 to fix this. A portion of the full fix was reverted due to a risk of regression. This is also requested for 4.8.z when that opens.
patches have been posted during 4.8 but due to regression
they were backedout in -89.EL. A fix for the regression was later posted.
There will be 3 patches to pull in for 4.9:
original patch went in - 2.6.9-86.
incremental patch went in - 2.6.9-78.26
(back out both above patches in - 2.6.9-89)
patch fixed the regression see:
move to POST state.
Should I post a single replacement patch that combines all of the above? I'm a tad uncomfortable with fixes-on-top-of-fixes at this point...
Committed in 89.1.EL . RPMS are available at http://people.redhat.com/vgoyal/rhel4/
