Description Dave Jones 2011-07-11 15:58:04 EDT
if Tainted: P is in a trace, the majority of the time, we can't do anything with it. A number of proprietary modules are known to corrupt kernel memory space, making it impossible to diagnose what actually happened.

On the few occasions recently where the trace has been a valid kernel bug, we've also had other untainted reports, so they're just adding noise.

Nikola, isn't this already fixed?
