Description of problem:
After yum update to kernel-18.104.22.168-90.fc12.i686 system oops on udev on one of my systems with an Haupagge card
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot the system
System gets into graphic mode but doesn't finish booting. Escaping into the console I see:
BUG unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000010
IP: [<f9369937>] ssb_is_sprom_available+0x7e/0x79 [ssb]
oops: 0000 [#1] SMP
last sysfs file: /sys/devices/pci0000:00:0000:00:00:0d.0/video4linux/radio/dev
followed by a stack trace and a lot more ivtv0 tagged lines
and then nothing
(Forgot how to save the console dump and I do need to get to work ....)
system to reboot
works with 22.214.171.124-70.fc12.i686
my other system (a thinkpad t42 laptop) works fine with the new kernel
I'm also hitting this same problem with my x86_64 laptop.
Same problem: updated this morning to kernel-PAE-126.96.36.199-90.fc12.i686 (plus additional updates). Not even boot to runlevel 1 works.
No problem with Kernel 188.8.131.52-70.fc12.i686.PAE.
Labtop: Dell Inspiron 9300 with Gnome 2.28.2
The same on laptop Dell XPS M1210, no hauppage card, no tv card. Please see crash photo:
Same here with 184.108.40.206-90.fc12.x86_64 on two Dell machines (Dell E521, Dell Vostro 1500). Most of the times udev does not
Same problem confirmed on 24 Dell Dimension E521 systems.
I'd like to add that also 220.127.116.11-92 (currently in -testing) shows the same problems.
Same problem found on an Acer Pundit (2.5GHz P4, 4Gb RAM, 2x cx88 DVB Freeview

Actually I believe this is a duplicate of bug 577463, please try koji build http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=164636 which fixes the problem for me.
Build above boots fine and has been up for 10 minutes, and yes, I have a b44 based network card
Ok. http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=164636 boots fine.
After installing kernel-22.214.171.124-94.fc12.x86_64 the issue is solved.
After installing kernel-126.96.36.199-94.fc12.x86_64 my laptop boots fine. However, there is that problem with gnome-scan not working any longer. I believe that the command to allow it to work was omitted in an effort to fix the above problem. Because I am a novice, I have not the knowledge it takes to go in the back of my computer and turn it on. Whoever has that knowledge thank you.
I've tried kernel-188.8.131.52-94.fc12.x86_64 on Dell E521 and it boots ok with nouveau. Blacklisting nouveau also make the nvidia driver work. Thanks!

I too have this issue on an Dell Inspirorn 5150 using 22.214.171.124-90.fc12.i686 or 126.96.36.199-92.fc12.i686 but using the Koji build seems to have resolved the Kernel Oops.
