Description Matt Domsch 2001-08-08 17:00:51 EDT
Patch changes entries in the DMI blacklist, and adds a couple functions 
they need.  PowerEdge 1300 needs only one entry (/500 and /550 are CPU 
speeds).  PowerEdge 300 needs name change there.  functions set_smp_reboot
() and set_smp_bios_reboot() added and called as necessary.  reboot_smp 
made non-static as it's needed across .c files.    Removed unnecessary and 
broken test for monotonically increasing DMI table entry types.

added to kernel 2.4.7-0.12 and later.
Comment 3 John A. Hull 2001-09-04 14:07:22 EDT
DMA is still enabled in RC2 on /dev/cdrom.
Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 2001-09-06 11:18:54 EDT
This bug report had nothing to do with DMA on cdroms.  It had to do
with rebooting certain machines.

We know about and have fixed other DMA problems since RC2.
