abrt is filing bugs for tainted kernels
Last modified: 2012-10-22 06:35:15 EDT
Description of problem:
We seem to have a regression of bug 593084 recently. A number of kernel bugs were filed when the taint flag was set to P. See bugs:
861884 861883 861837 861687 861688 (etC)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
From the number of reported bugs, apparently frequently.
can we get an update fixing this asap ? We're getting a *lot* of tainted bugs filed.
Also, to clarify a bit, we're seeing bugs filed with taints other than P. B, W, G, I, and D taints have all also been seen.
ABRT had a mechanism for rejecting of reports against tainted kernel. The mechanism got broken since the simplified reporting was introduced. A next release of libreport gets the mechanism back to work. See bug 864803
