Description Stanislaw Gruszka 2010-08-04 09:29:31 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #621103 +++

Description of problem:

We have bunch of new mac80211 and wlan drivers bug fixes in 2.6.32 -stable kernel, need to apply them to RHEL5.

Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-08-30 06:49:20 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update

Comment 2 Flavio Leitner 2010-08-30 15:34:46 UTC
Customer found an issue where the driver would fail after about 12 hours
of use (I don’t have the stack trace from the kernel handy).
Only a power cycle would allow the hardware to be used again.
He said that after applying the patches below, it works.

Could you confirm if the following patches will be applied?
