Description Alain Spineux 2002-10-11 05:58:43 EDT
Description of Problem:

I have an onboard "Cirrus Logic GD5480", When I use the graphical interface, 
the file /var/log/XFree86.0.log grow rapidely.
It contains line like :
moutl(4, D6BA)
moutl(C, 800)
moutl(18, 40D00D0)
moutl(8, 13006B)
This come probably from file :

#define minl(p) \
        (ErrorF("minl(%X)\n", p),\
        MMIO_IN32(pCir->chip.alp->BLTBase, (p)))
#define moutl(p,v) \
        (ErrorF("moutl(%X, %X)\n", p,v),\
        MMIO_OUT32(pCir->chip.alp->BLTBase, (p),(v)))

Probably old debuging messages, that must be remove for production release.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Linux release: 4.2.0-8 

How Reproducible:
Have a Cirrus Logic, start Xfree, AND USE IT

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:
Disk full

Expected Results:

Additional Information:
It was working fine with RH7.2 : XFree-4.1.0
