Description of problem:

Comment 1 Qian Cai 2012-08-09 02:43:07 UTC
The latest patch to fix it.

Comment 2 Josh Boyer 2012-08-15 12:46:25 UTC
I'm not really sure I agree this is a blocker.  It's been seen on exactly 1 machine, which had a BIOS set to a crazy date in the future.

Comment 3 Prarit Bhargava 2012-08-15 12:58:01 UTC
This isn't really that big of a deal.  The reality is that you're only going to hit this bug if you've set your BIOS year to greater than the year 2400.

It will obviously be fixed in mainline, but IMO, it's not a critical fix.


Comment 4 Josh Boyer 2012-08-21 15:11:23 UTC
The patch is queued up in tip now.  I'll try and find it amongst the forest of Ingo and put it in rawhide/f18.
