This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
More information and reason for this action is here:
Is this still a problem with 3.9 based F19 kernels?
The same as Bug 759304 Comment 17:
And I cannot (easily) test it anymore as I had to switch both my boxes back to ext4 as I do not have time to wait 15+ minutes for simple compilation.
Automatically asking for mass retesting of all the open Bugs (see for example Comment 3) is "not friendly" from the kernel maintainers. Retesting makes sense if the maintainer is aware of a specific fix (which s/he should mention) which could fix the bug.
Jan, with over a thousand open bugs, and just a handful of engineers, us retesting every users bug report isn't feasible. Asking users to do the retesting is the only practical way.
With each rebase of the kernel bringing thousands of changes, we can't be aware of every single fix that gets merged.
