Comment 1 Andrew Jones 2011-03-07 17:34:26 UTC
Moving to kernel. The report says it reproduces also on bare-metal.

Comment 3 Jeff Moyer 2011-08-08 17:42:17 UTC
That kernel posting is from May of last year!  Would you please repost your patch to lkml, CC-ing Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>?


Comment 4 Jeff Moyer 2011-10-24 19:03:12 UTC
Hi, Masanori,

Any update?  Getting this upstream will make it easier to get into RHEL.

Hi Jeffrey,

Sorry, I've been out of office for several months.

OK. I will repost the patch to upstream cc-ing Jens.

But, please note that even last year there were considerable differences between aoe drivers of RHEL5 kernel and the upstream kernel (in those days, 2.6.34).
In addition, please note we need to take another bug into account in case of RHEL5 kernel.
