Description of problem:
I've installed the rawhide kernel on my Red Hat Linux 8.0 box after there were
rumors that the scheduler performance was very much improved over Red Hat Linux
8.0 stock and errata kernels. BLAM - the responsiveness has improved greatly!
I am, however, getting spammed with repeating error messages with my ATI Radeon
7500 based workstation:
[drm:radeon_freelist_get] *ERROR* returning NULL!
The above message exists many different times, though I am not sure what I am
doing to trigger it. Subsequent reboots also produce the error messages. I
have not witnessed any usability problems as a result, however. Any further
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the rawhide 2.4.20-8.1 kernel.
2. Enjoy the responsiveness of the kernel.
3. Type "dmesg" at a console and get spammed.
Actual Results: Error messages with regards to the Radeon drm.
Expected Results: No error messages.
